Bills, Garland D.; Hudson, Alan; Chavez, Eduardo Hernandez
Southwest Journal of Linguistics, v19 n1 p11-27 Jun 1999
Examines 1990 Census data for a large sample of the Hispanic-origin population in the Southwest, exploring two possible indices of language maintenance--Spanish home language claiming and English proficiency--as these are influenced by nativity, time, and age of immigration, citizenship status of the foreign born, education, and income.
