Projections of the Hispanic Population: 1983 to 2080.
Current Population Reports, Series P-25 n995 Nov 1986
This report contains the first projections produced by the federal government of the Spanish-origin population by age, sex, and race for the years 1983 to 2080. These national projections, based on 1982 population estimates, show what the future Spanish-origin population would be under various assumptions about fertility, mortality, and net immigration trends. Three different assumptions were made about the possible future course of each of these components of population change. Review of the assumptions yields the conclusion that these projections may be somewhat conservative with respect to the future size of the Spanish-origin population. The report suggests that the Hispanic population may double within 30 years and triple in 60, with most of the growth occurring among older persons. It predicts that even without international migration, the Spanish-origin population may grow more quickly than most other major population groups with immigration. The document contains numerous tables and graphs. (TES)
