Summary

Between 1960 and 1970, the black population of the southern United States increased only four percent by comparison with a national increase in black population of twenty percent. Considering the many factors involved in population redistribution, this report compares southern and overall national trends in black population and analyzes the redistribution of blacks within the South for the decade 1960-1970. Attention is first given to the two major components of growth, natural increase (the balance of births and deaths) and net migration (the difference between in- and out-migration). Variations in patterns of black population growth in different states are then examined. It is hypothesized that losses of blacks from rural areas were offset by gains in the cities, as the highest rates of growth of black population occur in metropolitan areas. Within these areas, however, distinct differences between the rings and the inner cities are evident. In addition, it is pointed out, the movement of blacks into southern cities has been accompanied by the movement of whites from the central cities to the suburbs. Throughout this report statistics are presented to illustrate the trends discussed. (Author/MC)
