Data elaborated by Guido Tintori for Altreitaliefrom U.S. Census Bureau, Population Division. Internet Release date: March 9, 1999 Authors: Campbell Gibson and Emily Lennon Maintained By: Laura K. Yax (Population Division) Last Revised: January 18, 2001 at 10:02:39 AM

 

* Indicates sample data.

 

- Represents zero or rounds to zero.

 

1/ Starting in 1960, includes population of Alaska and Hawaii. For 1890, excludes population enumerated in the Indian Territory and on Indian reservations for whom information on most topics, including nativity, was not collected. See Table 6.

 

2/ Puerto Rico is the only outlying area for which the number has ever exceeded 100,000. The numbers for Puerto Rico: 1,190,533 in 1990; 1,002,863 in 1980; 810,087 in 1970; 617,056 in 1960; 226,010 in 1950; 69,967 in 1940; 52,774 in 1930; 11,811 in 1920; 1,513 In 1910; and 678 in 1900. See text for Table 1.

 

3/ The data shown in Table 1 are based on the 15-percent sample. For 1970, data based on the 5-percent sample show total population as 203,193,774, native population as 193,590,856, born in the United States as 191,836,655, born abroad as 1,617,396, in outlying areas as 873,241, of American parents as 744,155, and foreign-born population as 9,739,723. See text for Table 1.

 

4/ In 1850 and 1860, information on nativity was not collected for slaves. The data in the table assume, as was done in 1870 census reports, that all slaves in 1850 and 1860 were native. Of the total Black population of 4,880,009 in 1870, 9,645, or 0.2 percent, were foreign-born (1870 census, Vol. I, Dubester #45, Table XXII, pp. 606-615).
