1960 Census of Population: Subject Reports: Mobility for Metropolitan Areas

Report Number PC(2)-2C

Population Movement Within SMSA's and Migration To and From SMSA's

The final reports of the 1960 Population Census are arranged in three volumes and a joint Population-Housing series of census tract reports. Volume II (Series PC(2) reports) are Subject Reports. Each report concentrates on a particular subject. Detailed information and cross-relationships are generally provided on a national and regional level. In a few reports, data for States or standard metropolitan statistical areas are also shown.

This report, designated as PC(2)-2C, presents statistics on residence in 1955 for persons 5 years old and over who were living in 1960 or in 1955 in the 101 standard metropolitan statistical areas with a population of 250,000 or more. The focus is on changes in residence within and between standard metropolitan statistical areas and on the influx of people from nonmetropolitan areas.

Some statistics on out-movers from the metropolitan areas are also included, however. The several mobility categories are cross-classified by various demographic, social, and economic characteristics. The statistics for this report are derived from the 25-percent sample of the 1960 Census.

The PDF to the right contains the Title Page, Preface, Acknowledgments, Final Reports (list), Contents and Introduction.

A Note on Language

Census statistics date back to 1790 and reflect the growth and change of the United States. Past census reports contain some terms that today’s readers may consider obsolete and inappropriate. As part of our goal to be open and transparent with the public, we are improving access to all Census Bureau original publications and statistics, which serve as a guide to the nation's history.
