Population Projections: Chicago City and Suburban Ring, 1970-2000, by Age, Race, and Sex.
Hinze, Kenneth E.; And Others
The projections presented in this document (mostly in the form of tables) are characterized by a number of features. For example, population predictions for three Chicago area ethnic groups, black, Spanish speaking, and majority white and other (including non-white population other than black) are provided separately. Another feature of these predictions is that they do more than just predict the number of persons (classified by age, sex, and race/ethnicity) that will be living in the Chicago region. The projections translate the "body count" for each year from 1975 to 2000 into: (1) number of households; (2) marital status; (3) labor force; (4) school enrollment by grade; and (5) classroom teachers. Each of these "functional" projections (except the last) is done separately for the black, Spanish, and majority white populations by age and sex, and then summed for grand totals of all race/ethnic groups combined. In addition, detailed cross-tabulations of the projections are included for individual researchers who wish to further explore particular problems. For some topics (especially labor force and school enrollment), these detailed statistics are provided for single years of age between 1978 and 1983, in order to show year-to-year changes in the immediate future.
