CENSUS 2000: GROWING TOGETHER OR APART?
A One-Day Conference on U.S and California Population Trends and
Their Implications for Cities and Metropolitan Areas
8:30am-4:30pm, Wurster Hall Auditorium [Room 112], UC Berkeley Campus
Admission is Free -- No RSVP Req'd
The 2000 Census has reaffirmed many of the basic trends of earlier research
in the 1990's: the atomization of the family, the growth of minority
populations and new immigrants, along with the population shift from the
Northeast and Midwest to the South and West. Yet within these broad national
trends are substantial variations by region, and between and within
metropolitan areas. These differences have important implications for
planning, urban policy, regional and economic development as well as for
housing and community welfare agendas at the local and state level.
During this one day conference, on November 1, 2002, scholars will look at
the geographic impact of changes to the population. Presentations will
include William Frey on regional and metropolitan growth trends, Robert Lang
on the rise of the "boomburbs," Paul Jargowsky on sprawl and poverty, Isabel
Sawhill on children and families, Hans Johnson on the regions in California,
Dowell Myers on immigration, Peter Schrag on demographics and politics, and
Ness Sandoval on segregation and poverty. For more information see:
