Spanish Heritage Population of the Southwest by County: 1960 and 1970; NCHSR (National Center for Health Services Research) Research Report Series.
Jaramillo, Phillip; And Others
The Spanish Heritage (Hispanic) population is our second largest minority. Eighty percent of Hispanics live in the five southwestern states of California, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and Colorado. The 1970 U.S. Census was the first to identify Hispanics separately. The present study estimates 1960 Hispanic population data from the data for 1970. Ten tables, arranged in alphabetical order for the 5 southwestern states, show 1970 and estimated 1960 population by state, county, and sex for the total population and for Hispanics. Ratio changes are also shown. Each table is labelled by state and county code as used by the Bureau of the Census and inlcudes the 454 county names. All numbers under the following three headings were found in selected census reports: Total 1960 Population, Total 1970 Spanish Heritage Population, and County Percent Change: 1960-1970. All numbers under the following headings were derived from the previous three headings: 1960 Spanish Heritage (Estimate) and Percent Spanish Heritage (1960 Estimate). Following the tables are maps of the five states which show the county boundaries, county names, and Health Service areas. The 1960 Spanish Heritage estimate could not be calculated for 107 of the 454 counties due to lack of 1970 data for these counties. Therefore, the unreported persons of Spanish Heritage who live in these counties are not represented in this report. (Author/NQ)
