Fernandez, Edward W.; Cresce, Arthur
A statistical description of the Spanish origin population in the United States is presented. Data were obtained in March 1974 in the Current Population Survey of the Bureau of the Census. The statistics pertain to such population characteristics as size, composition, age, residence, marital status, educational attainment, employment status, occupation, and income. The report emphasizes the quantitative aspects of these characteristics and stresses comparisons between the Spanish origin population and the total United States population, and between the subcategories of Spanish origin (Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Central or South American, and other Spanish origin). Reliability of the estimates is discussed. (NQ)
