This report begins with a profile of selected aggregate data on Hispanic population trends from 1980 to 1990 derived from federal census and state vital statistics reports. The remainder of the report profiles available aggregate data on educational participation and attainment during roughly the same period of time from a variety of sources. The report is divided into five major sections: (1) profile of the Hispanic population in Nebraska; (2) profile of Hispanics in preschool, elementary, and secondary education; (3) profile of Hispanics in postsecondary education; (4) data appendixes; and (5) summary of sources. Ten of Nebraska's public school districts have been chosen to illustrate elementary and secondary trends. In 1990-91, the Scottsbluff public schools had a Hispanic enrollment of 25.1%, while the Lincoln public schools had the smallest Hispanic enrollment of the profiled districts, at 1.7%. Overall, Hispanics constituted 2.3% of Nebraska's 1990 population, and they comprised at least 5% of the population of 5 counties. Hispanic student enrollment increased 35.8% from 1980-81 to 1990-91; Hispanic students reached 2.6% of total student enrollment in 1990-91. Hispanic dropouts, however, accounted for 5.5% of total dropouts statewide. Less than 1% of the state's teachers were Hispanic. The number of Hispanic students in postsecondary education increased over the period from 1986-87 to 1991-92 to a high of 1,596 students, 1.4% of the student enrollment in the state's postsecondary institutions. Appendixes contain nine tables of data. (Contains 44 figures, 26 tables, and 28 references.) (SLD)
