California’s racial and ethnic composition has changed dramatically over the last generation: so dramatically, in fact, that many businesses, public interest groups, media professionals, and policymakers lack current, reliable information about the state’s population. In this sourcebook, Belinda Reyes and a team of researchers examine trends and outcomes in:
- economic status
- political participation
- ethnic geography
Each chapter presents key indicators for the state’s four major racial and ethnic groups: whites, African Americans, Asians, and Hispanics. Where possible, the authors also present trends and outcomes for major Asian and Hispanic subgroups.
