American Indian Areas and Alaska Native Villages: 1980. Census of Population. Supplementary Report.
Paisano, Edna L.; Crook, Karen A.
The American Indian population exceeded 1 million (1,366,676) in 1980, showing an increase of about 574,000 persons or 72% over the decade. The 1980 Census also identified 42,162 Eskimo and 14,205 Aleut who are still highly concentrated in Alaska. The substantially larger count is the result of natural increase and overall improvements in census procedures, including modified enumeration procedures on American Indian reservations and the use of self-identification. Of federal and state reservations, 278 were identified with 192 in the West and 16 in the South. The report further indicates that one-fourth (339,836) of all American Indians lived on reservations, comprising about 49% of the total population on reservations. The narrative part of the report discusses definitions and explanations (race, identified areas); other population characteristics (household, relationship to householder); other area classifications (regions, divisions, states, counties); housing characteristics, comparability of 1980 data; other 1980 census reports relevant to American Indians; and limitations of the data. Twelve tables provide census tabulations for American Indian, Eskimo and Aleut population by state, reservations and Alaska Native villages, housing unit counts; and persons by race. (ERB)
