 Toward a Critical Demography   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Accordingly, the purpose of this paper is to introduce racism as an explanatory variable in the demography of race and ethnicity.
Demography is not substantially different from the social sciences in general in terms of it’s own racial and ethnic composition--predominantly consisting of white, middle-aged males (Omi and Winant 1994; Steinberg 1995).
Further evidence of this relative lack of diversity in demography is the absence of an organization of minority demographers comparable to the Association of Black Sociologists, the National Association of Black Psychologists, and the National Economics Association.
