Michigan Hispanic Population Trend, 1990-2010

Over the next decade it is estimated that 30% of Michigan’s population will begin to enter retirement. Due to this void in the workforce, Michigan’s population growth is more imperative than ever. Despite this decrease in the Baby Boomer generation workforce, the Latino population continues to grow. The growth of the Latino population continues to be crucial to economic well-being of the state.

  • Michigan’s birth rate has dropped more than 21% over the last decade.
  • In 2000, there were 153,080 births to Michigan residents according to the U.S. Census and in 2009, 117,309 babies were born. This decline in population is having a detrimental effect on Michigan’s economy.
  • Michigan’s loss of manufacturing jobs has caused 15,855 jobs to leave Michigan resulting in economic loss of $1.9 billion.
  • The exodus of Michigan residents is having a negative effect on Michigan’s population and economy.
  • Therefore, Michigan is in need of immigrant population with a high birth rate to improve economic conditions.

  • In 2009, Hispanics constituted 12.5% of the total fall college or university enrollment, compared to 62.3% constituted by their white peers and 14.3% constituted of their black peers
  • Nationally, Hispanics have increased their percentage of the total college or university enrollment from 10% to 12.5% from 2000-2009

In Michigan Latino students make up about 104,000 of the K-12 populations (about 6% of the total students).

Latino students in Michigan have one of the highest dropout rates at 26%.

access to educational resources 2009
Access to Educational Resources, 2009

15% of Hispanics in Michigan have access to well-resourced, high-performing schools, compared to 34% accessibility of their white peers and 7% of their black peers

In addition, 41% of Hispanics in Michigan are enrolled in poorly-resourced, low-performing schools in Michigan, compared with 13% of their white peers and 62% of their black peers

Therefore, Hispanics have a likely chance to be disadvantaged by the lack of resources in the schools they attend

unemployment rates for hispanics
Unemployment Rates for Hispanics
  • The sharp jump in unemployment rates in Michigan for Hispanics in 2001 is consistent with the heavy recession-induced job loss in manufacturing that occurred that year. According to this data, Hispanic jobless rates in Michigan have ranged from a low of 5.5% in 2006 to a high of 16.6% in 2009. The large jobless rate drop in 2006 for Hispanics may be overstated, as total unemployment statewide was basically flat.
  • Hispanic jobless rates have been significantly higher than average for all years except 2006. Hispanic jobless rates in most years were well above rates for whites, but remain below the jobless rates recorded for the Michigan African American labor force.
  • The jobless rate for Michigan Hispanics in 2009 is 16.6%, as compared to the 6.1% jobless rate for Michigan’s general population

Unemployment rates for Hispanics in Michigan must be used with caution due to data fluctuations.

areas of employment by hispanics employment distribution by occupational categories
Areas of Employment by Hispanics, Employment Distribution by Occupational Categories
  • Michigan Hispanics are more concentrated in occupations of services and production, manufacturing, and leisure and hospitality than occupations in information, financial, and administrative services industries
  • A much higher proportion of Michigan Hispanics were employed in production occupations versus the nation (16% for Michigan vs. 9% for the U.S.). This partially reflects the fact that Michigan’s economy has traditionally had a higher proportion of its total workforce employed in manufacturing.
  • Relatively speaking, fewer Hispanics in Michigan were employed in construction and extraction occupations than nationally (9% vs. 14% percent). The higher relative availability of production positions in Michigan, due to its large manufacturing base, provides alternative job opportunities for Hispanics who might otherwise pursue construction jobs. Skill and educational requirements for these jobs can be similar, although some of the production positions offer greater potential for year-round work.

Employment Distribution by Level of Income
  • According to U.S. Census data, Hispanic workers in Michigan were disproportionately concentrated in the lowest wage categories when compared with the overall labor force.

  • The median earnings for Michigan Hispanics’ annual personal income in 2009 was $18,300 in relation to $27,000 for non-Hispanic whites and $21,000 for blacks
  • Annually, Hispanics earn less than their counterparts by an average of $9,833 nationally and $7,541 in Michigan
