Hispanic Intermarriage in New York City: 1975. Monograph No. 2.
Fitzpatrick, Joseph P.; Gurak, Douglas T.
This report seeks to determine trends in assimilation among Hispanic Americans with special attention to the question of intermarriage. After reviewing the different Hispanic groups found in New York City, the report indicates that intermarriage rates (with the exception of those for Puerto Ricans and first-generation Dominicans) are high among Hispanics. Most of these intermarriages take place with members of other Hispanic groups but, it is reported, the second generation has witnessed a marked increase in marriages with non-Hispanics. It is also noted that exogamy is generally associated with higher occupational status, a factor especially true for brides. Other data concerning intermarriage are presented, and recommendations are made concerning administrative and research needs. Bibliography and tables elucidating demographic and marriage patterns are included. (Author/WP)
