Racial and Ethnic Change

Show Summary Details


Racial and ethnic change is establishing a new California — one that is unsettling to the state's traditional majority. Residents are keenly aware that many immigrants have been moving to California from Asia and Latin America. This chapter reviews the state's changing demographics and Latino voting trends in the 1990s and examines the future projections for each. The discussion is based on analysis of more than 2000 interviews with Latinos, a minimum of 400 in each of the five survey waves, during the 1998 election cycle. This chapter also focuses on the Latino profile and its political effects. Latinos are the key to understanding the rapid growth and changing demographics in California.
