Place of Birth and Language Characteristics of Persons of Hispanic Origin in the United States, Spring 1976. National Center for Education Statistics Bulletin.
National Center for Education Statistics (DHEW), Washington, DC.
Of an estimated 11.2 million persons in the United States identifying themselves as being of Hispanic origin in spring 1976, 3 out of 4 were native born. As a group, they had a high degree of Spanish-language maintenance. The degree of current Spanish-language usage was much lower among those born in the United States than among those born in a Spanish-speaking country. These findings and others released in the bulletin presented here are from the spring 1976 Survey of Income and Education. Other findings are reported under the following headings: (1) Hispanic orgin subgroups; (2) nativity; (3) current language, origin and nativity; (4) source of data; (5) related reports; and (6) a glossary of terms used in the report. Seven statistical tables accompany the report. (AMH)
