All pages are interactive: you can click on the charts to change the visualizations, click on the maps for a closer look at data by municipality, and click on the columns within the tables to change how the information is sorted. In addition, all data is available for download: simply press “Get the Data” at the bottom of each table. We hope you enjoy this new resource.
Four Year Anniversary of Hurricane Maria
Description: For the fourth anniversary of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico the Center for Puerto Rican Studies at Hunter College has prepared a new report focused specifically on aging and disabled populations to help better understand how these groups are disproportionately impacted by disasters like Hurricane Maria, the 2020 earthquakes, power outages, flooding, and the COVID-19 pandemic.These events have had a compounding mental, physical, and socioeconomic effect on vulnerable populations like the elderly and the disabled. This report analyzes the intersection between vulnerable populations (senior age and disabled population) and CDC’s social vulnerability index (SVI).
Decennial Analysis for Puerto Rico
Description: This report highlights 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 shift from ‘whiteness’ to ‘some other race’ and increased identification with more than one race and Puerto Rico’s population decline.
Decennial Redistricting Researc Brief Series
Description: This research brief series will present an updated an analysis of population changes between 2010 and 2020, produced by the Data Hub staff, and the implications for congressional redistricting in New York and Florida. Presently, state legislatures are considering proposals to change the boundaries of legislative districts that take place every decade in the aftermath of the decennial census. With a focus on the states with the most Puerto Ricans, whether numerically or proportionately, Centro has produced reports that assess and anticipate possible redistricting outcomes based on available population data. Current proposals by the New York Independent Redistricting Commission, for instance, threaten Hispanic congressional representation and dilute Hispanic representation and voting impact, at a time when Hispanics have contributed to the growth of the state’s population.
