Multiple origins, uncertain destinies Hispanics and the American future ( )
10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,869 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Given current demographic trends, nearly one in five U.S. residents will be of Hispanic origin by 2025. This major demographic shift and its implications for both the United States and the growing Hispanic population make Multiple Origins, Uncertain Destinies a most timely book. This report from the National Research Council describes how Hispanics are transforming the country as they disperse geographically. It considers their roles in schools, in the labor market, in the health care system, and in U.S. politics. The book looks carefully at the diverse populations encompassed by the term Hispanic, representing immigrants and their children and grandchildren from nearly two dozen Spanish-speaking countries. It describes the trajectory of the younger generations and established residents, and it projects long-term trends in population aging, social disparities, and social mobility that have shaped and will shape the Hispanic experience

In the United States, health among racial and ethnic minorities, as well as poor people, is significantly worse than the overall U.S. population.

It focuses on practical solutions to remedy the state of the current health disparity crisis

Governance and Opportunity in Metropolitan America Governmental Arrangements and Individual Life Chances in Urban America by National Research Council Staff ( )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
America's cities have symbolized the nation's prosperity, dynamism, and innovation. Even with the trend toward suburbanization, many central cities attract substantial new investment and employment. Within this profile of health however, many urban areas are beset by problems of economic disparity, physical deterioration, and social distress. This volume addresses the condition of the city from the perspective of the larger metropolitan region. It offers important, thought-provoking perspectives on the structure of metropolitan-level decisionmaking, the disadvantages faced by cities and city residents, and expanding economic opportunity to all residents in a metropolitan area. The book provides data, real-world examples, and analyses in key areas: -- Distribution of metropolitan populations and what this means for city dwellers, suburbanites, whites, and minorities. -- How quality of life depends on the spatial structure of a community and how problems are based on inequalities in spatial opportunity -- with a focus on the relationship between taxes and services. -- The role of the central city today, the rationale for revitalizing central cities, and city-suburban interdependence
