HISP1970
Hispanic origin, 1970 alternate version

Description

HISP1970 identifies and classifies persons of Spanish/Hispanic origin using the unique Hispanic origin question asked in 1970 (Form 1 only). See HISPAN for another measure of Hispanic origin in 1970 and other years. Users should note that race questions and questions assessing Spanish/Hispanic origin were not asked in the Puerto Rican censuses prior to 2000.

Comparability

Although Hispanic origin was assessed through a direct question in the 1970 Form 1 samples, as it was in the U.S. censuses of 1980-2000, the ACS, the Puerto Rican census of 2000 and the PRCS (see HISPAN), HISP1970 is not directly comparable to HISPAN in those years and samples. Several factors contribute to this lack of comparability, including changes in the order and availability of response categories and changes in the Census Bureau's public relations strategies. See page B-13 of the original 1990 codebook for the Census Bureau's discussion of why Hispanic data from 1970 is not comparable with later years.
