We, the Asian and Pacific Islander Americans by Dwight L Johnson( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet, fifth in a series of six, presents a descriptive statistical profile of the Asian and Pacific Islander Americans based on data from the 1980 U.S. Census. The census identifies more than 20 specific population groups, and growth in terms of numbers and diversity is highlighted. Total population for these groups numbered 3.7 million persons in 1980, compared to 1.5 million in 1970. Increased immigration and natural birth rates and changes in census race definitions account for this increase. Twelve figures and six tables focus on population, education, occupation, income, poverty status, and housing data for the largest Asian groups (Chinese, Filipinos, Japanese, Asian Indians, Koreans, and Vietnamese) and for the largest Pacific Islander groups (Hawaiians, Samoans, and Guamanians). Selected statistical data from these figures and tables are identified, highlighted, and summarized. Two additional tables present selected characteristics for all Asian groups with more than 5,000 U.S. residents and all Pacific Islander groups with over 2,500 U.S. inhabitants. (Jhp)

We, the Americans by Gary H Wilkinson( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Demographic data based on the U.S. census of 1980 are presented and compared to data from the 1970 census. A series of charts, maps, graphs, and tables provide detailed statistical data on such things as population growth trends, population by race and age, educational achievement, number of people living alone, male and female occupations, percent homeowners, and so on. A narrative account elaborates on the information found in the charts and tables. The information may be summarized briefly as follows: It is unlikely that the U.S. population will ever again grow as rapidly as during the 20 years following World War ii. The population is moving south and west, out of large cities, and to suburbs and the countryside. Minority populations are growing at a faster rate than the rest of the population. The population is aging and will continue to grow older. More people are living alone, and families are smaller. The population as a whole is better educated than earlier generations. People are marrying later than they used to. Slightly over half of all women are now in the work force. Incomes rose in the 1970s, but the gains were largely offset by increases in the cost of living. The poverty rate dropped slightly during the 1970s for the total population, but it dropped substantially for senior citizens. More people are buying their own homes, despite higher costs. Classroom teachers can use this resource for research projects and lecture material. (Jb)
