Persons of Spanish Origin in the United States: March 1975. Population Characteristics. Current Population Reports.
Fernandez, Edward W., Comp.; And Others
In March 1975, there were about 11.2 million persons of Spanish origin in the United States. These included 6.7 million persons of Mexican origin, about 1.7 million of Puerto Rican origin, about 740,000 of Cuban origin, 670,000 of Central or South American origin, and about 1.4 million of other Spanish origin. This report presents a detailed statistical portrait of the Spanish origin population in the United States from data collected by the Bureau of the Census in the March 1975 Current Population Survey. Supplemented by text tables and graphs, the report describes such social, economic, and demographic characteristics as size, composition, age, sex, residence, marital status, educational attainment, employment and occupation, income, and family characteristics. Quantitative comparisons between the total United States population and Spanish origin population, and among the subcategories of Spanish origin (Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Central or South American, and other Spanish origin) are presented. Reliability of the estimates is discussed. (NQ)
