  • Puerto Rico's Declining Population
    Focus of Centro Data Sheet


    With fewer babies being born in Puerto Rico, the island is seeing a drop in its overall population, according to a new data sheet published by Centro. This population trend is compounded when combined with vigorous emigration that includes many islanders of working and reproductive age.

    Centro researcher Carlos Vargas-Ramos said this pattern reverses a historical trend. “Puerto Rico’s historical issue has always been one of overpopulation,” he said. “At this point, we may be seeing the beginning of the opposite phenomena: under population.” The people leaving the island tend to be those of working age, particularly the younger segment of the population who are of reproductive age, he said.

  • Centro's New Educational Tool
    Highlights Puerto Rican Heritage

    Centro’s new Puerto Rican Heritage Poster Series is a collection of five large posters that provide a brief historical chronology of Puerto Ricans in the United States and three posters that are historical and demographic maps that pictorially reflect Puerto Rican migration. As part of Centro’s Traveling Exhibits program, the posters are available to educational and not-for-profit organizations. The posters are also available for sale to the general public.

    This rich heritage series is designed to provide an attractive visual educational tool for teachers and others to use in classrooms or other public spaces, and to introduce students to and interest them in this significant piece of Puerto Rican and American history.
