1960 Census: Subject Reports, Puerto Ricans in the United States: Social and Economic Data for Persons of Puerto Rican Birth and Parentage


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)-1D, contains 25-percent sample data on social and economic characteristics of the population of Puerto Rican birth and parentage for the United States, in States with a Puerto Rican population of 25,000 or more, and in standard metropolitan statistical areas of 250,000 or more with a Puerto Rican population of 25,000 or more.

Statistics are presented separately for persons of Puerto Rican birth and those of Puerto Rican parentage on age, residence in 1955, years of school completed, school enrollment, marital status, relationship to head of household, family composition and characteristics, employment status, hours worked, occupation, industry, weeks worked, and income.

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.
