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

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Demographic data are presented about the people who have immigrated to the United States from Asia and the Pacific Islands. Twelve figures (pie charts, bar graphs, and maps), and eight tables provide detailed, statistical information on such things as (1) distribution of Asians and Pacific Islanders in the United States, (2) states with the largest percent of Asian and Pacific Islander populations, (3) median age, (4) percent in the labor force, (5) percent high school graduates for those over 25, (6) businesses owned by these immigrants, and (7) median value of homes, and other topics. The data are based on 1980 census figures. A narrative account summarizes the information found in the charts and tables. For example: Asians and Pacific Islanders living in the United States numbered 3.7 million in 1980, with 58 percent living in the west. Their median age was 28.4 years, and the average family size was 3.8 persons. Of those aged 25 years and older, 75 percent were at least high school graduates compared to 66 percent nationally, and 33 percent were college graduates, compared with 16 percent of the total population. Sixty-seven percent of Asians and Pacific Islanders participated in the labor force. They owned more than 200,000 firms, 92 percent of which were operated as individual proprietorships. The median family income for Asians and Pacific Islanders was $22,700, and about 13 percent of the individuals were in poverty. Fifty-two percent owned or were buying their own homes, with the median value at $83,900. Teachers and curriculum developers will find this document a resource for developing multicultural lessons and activities. (Jb)

We, the Americans by Gary H Wilkinson( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 174 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)

Statistical tables, graphs, and photographs accompany this narrative summary that highlights 1980 census information abut Hispanics in the United States and emphasizes Hispanic progress since the 1970 census. Comparisons are made between 1970 and 1980 census information and between Hispanics and the total United States population. Text is presented in Spanish and English on facing pages, and tables and graphs are labeled in both languages. Broad topics are population growth and distribution, population age, family characteristics, education, voter participation, and future trends. Hispanic population growth is reported as having increased by 61% from 1970, up to a total of 14.6 million or 6.4% of the total population. Tables show Spanish-origin persons by race and by four Hispanic groups--Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, and other Spanish. Census data are cited showing that in comparison to the total population the Hispanic population is substantially younger, has fewer years of schooling, is more likely to be unemployed, and is less likely to vote. Progress since the 1970 census is noted for percentage of high school graduates and for women's educational attainment. Discussion of future trends includes prediction of continued population growth and the need for jobs and appropriate education. (Jhz)
