1960 Census of Population: Subject Reports: Nonwhite Population by Race

Report Number PC(2)-1C

Social and Economic Statistics for Negroes, Indians, Japanese, Chinese, and Filipinos

The final reports of the 1960 Population Census are arranged in three volumes and a joint Population-Housing series of census tract reports. Volume II (Series PC(2) reports) are Subject Reports. Each report concentrates on a particular subject. Detailed information and cross-relationships are generally provided on a national and regional level. In a few reports, data for States or standard metropolitan statistical areas are also shown.

This report, designated as PC(2)-1C, contains 25-percent sample data on social and economic characteristics of the nonwhite population by race, for the United States, regions, and selected States and standard metropolitan statistical areas (SMSAs). This information includes nativity, residence in 1955, years of school completed, marital status, relationship to head of household, family composition and characteristics, employment status, hours worked, weeks worked in 1959, occupation, industry, and income.

The last two tables of this report contain complete-count data on nonwhite races in Hawaii and Alaska. Data are shown separately for Japanese, Chinese, Filipinos, Hawaiians, and part-Hawaiians in Hawaii, and for Aleuts, Eskimos, and American Indians in Alaska. The information in these tables includes age, marital status, and household relationship.

The PDF to the right contains the Title Page, Preface, Acknowledgments, Final Reports (list), Contents and Introduction.

A Note on Language

Census statistics date back to 1790 and reflect the growth and change of the United States. Past census reports contain some terms that today’s readers may consider obsolete and inappropriate. As part of our goal to be open and transparent with the public, we are improving access to all Census Bureau original publications and statistics, which serve as a guide to the nation's history.
