The Hispanic Population: A Demographic and Issue Profile. Hearings before the Subcommittee on Census and Population of the Committee on Post Office and Civil Service. House of Representatives, Ninety-Eighth Congress, First Session (September 13-15, 1983).
Congress of the U. S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Post Office and Civil Service.
A wide series of issues affecting the Hispanic community were discussed in these hearings. After a presentation of census findings on Hispanic socioeconomic and demographic characteristics by the Acting Director of the Census Bureau, statements were offered on census findings about Hispanic language use; immigrant Hispanics and jobs and the Hispanic impact on non-Hispanic earnings and employment; and recent immigration from Latin America. The greater part of the hearings consisted of testimony on three topics: bilingual education, the Hispanic business sector, and employment in the Hispanic community. The Simpson-Mazzoli immigration bill was also discussed. Those testifying on these topics included government agency heads, educators, representatives of Hispanic organizations, U.S. Representatives, and economists. (CMG)
