Persons of Spanish Origin by State: 1980. Supplementary Report. 1980 Census of Population.
Bureau of the Census (DOC), Suitland, MD. Population Div.
This supplemental report to the 1980 U.S. census presents counts of people of Spanish origin by type (Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, and Other) in the United States, U.S. regions, divisions, and individual states. Counts of the Spanish and non-Spanish populations by races also are provided. In addition, the report evaluates reporting on the 1980 census item on Spanish/Hispanic origin or descent. In 1980, the Spanish origin population total represented an increase of 61 percent over the 1970 figure. The sharp increase appears to have resulted in part from high fertility, better counting measures, and substantial immigration from Mexico, Cuba and other Central American and South American countries. The Mexican origin population, which constituted the largest single group of Spanish people in the United States, showed a 10-year increase of 93 percent. In 1980, more than 60 percent of the nation's Hispanics lived in California, Texas, and New York. California ranked first with 4.5 million Hispanics, Texas ranked second with 3 million Hispanics and New York ranked third with 1.7 million Hispanics. Florida and Illinois ranked fourth and fifth, respectively, each with more than 600,000 Hispanic people. These five states held the same rank positions in 1970. The document contains 12 tables. (TES)
