Data Hub Coffee Hour: Decennial Analysis for Puerto Rico

October 13, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

The Center for Puerto Rican Studies invites you to a cafecito seminar showcasing current research by Centro’s data lab team. Dr. Yarimar Bonilla (Centro Director), Dr. Isar Godreau (UPR researcher) and Damayra Figueroa-Lazu (research assistant) will highlight some key findings from the newly released 2020 Decennial Census data for legislative redistricting including: racial identification shift from “whiteness” to some other race and increased identification with more than one race. Changes in racial identification will be further analyzed at the county level. The event will conclude with an open discussion with the audience. Some questions to be discussed: 1) What is driving Puerto Rico’s identity shift and embrace of mixed race identity?, 2) How has this been impacted by changes in the ways the census organizes and codes its information? 3) Which municipalities and barrios experienced the most change in terms of racial identification? Feel free to bring your questions to the cafecito! Our data lab team will also guide you through our interactive report that contains visualization and web mapping tools of changes in race, population, and housing at the municipal and barrio level. Join us for an in-depth conversation and analysis via Zoom
