This document consists of the first 10 issues of a newsletter devoted to statistical information on the status of minorities (particularly linguistic minorities) in the United States based on excerpts and interpretations of data from the 1990 Census of Population. Information from other sources, such as the National Center for Education Statistics and the Immigration and Naturalization Service, is also reported. Issue 1 (1991) concentrates on the growth in the minority population and the increasing diversity of the United States. Issue 2 (1991), reviewing questions of undercounting of minorities, focuses on the use of information gained about linguistic minorities and limited English speaking people. Issue 3 (1991) highlights the increasing diversity of the U.S. Asian population. Issue 4 (1991) focuses on Hispanic, American Indian, and Alaska Native minorities. Issue 1 (1992) focuses on the growth of the Pacific Islander population in the United States. Issue 2 (1992) covers language minorities in Vermont, African American census information, gender equity, and the accuracy of the homeless count. Issue 3 (1992) is devoted to diversity and multilingualism in the nation's largest cities and in California, New York, and Texas. Issue 4 (1992) features national information on multilingualism and the foreign-born population. Issue 5 (1992) provides language data from the National Education Longitudinal Study (NELS:88), with a focus on children and elementary and secondary education. Issue 6 (1992) explores population data and information about schools and students. (SLD)
