Current Population Report, series P-20 n480 Jan 1995
This report presents a statistical portrait of the demographic, social, and economic characteristics of Blacks based primarily on the March 1993 and 1994 Supplements to the Current Population Survey. Topics covered include population growth and geographic distribution, marital status, family type and composition, educational attainment, employment and unemployment, occupational distribution, family income and earnings, poverty status, and the tenure of householders. The report includes a special emphasis on children as of March 1993. Data are presented on demographic, social, and economic characteristics for black children under 18 years since 1970. In 1994, the black population numbered 33 million, about 13 percent of the nation's total. In 1993, there were 11 million black children under age 18. In 1980, 8 percent of black adults had at least a bachelor's degree, but in 1994 this proportion had increased to 13 percent. Black families had a real median income of $21,550 in 1993, not statistically different from their 1969 income of $22,000. Twelve figures, 15 text tables, and 31 detailed tables present findings for population and economic trends. Six appendixes provide supplemental information, including discussions of methodology.
