S1 1987 (Volume 65)
January 1987 | William P. O'Hare
Most of the black demographic trends of the 1970s have continued into the 1980s, but the pace has quickened in some areas and slowed in others. While the black population is becoming proportionately larger-especially among the very young and the very old-the actual rate of increase is declining. Migration and residential patterns continue to move in lines parallel to those of whites, but more slowly; central cities have become increasingly black. Combined complex trends of fertility, marriage, and family structure are leaving an ever-larger share of black children in poverty.
