- Author(s): Estrada, Leobardo F.
- et al.
To understand the patterns and possible consequences of Latino suburbanization, it is necessary to comprehend the historical demographic processes which have resulted in this centralization (urbanization) and decentralization (intra-metropolitan dispersion). This paper will describe these processes, discuss their distinctiveness, and finally, consider the implications which point to a concurrent process for Latinos in Los Angeles of "traditional" suburbanization and new barrio formation.
