Over the last decade, a group of demographers has raised their voices concerning Puerto Rico’s population decline. Probably the most accessible and comprehensive text on this topic is “Puerto Rico 2000–2010: Más allá del censo” by Raúl Figueroa, Dr. Rosario Rivera-Negrón and Dr. Judith Rodríguez-Figueroa.

Here, Alexis R. Santos, PhD; assistant professor at the Department of Human Development and Family Studies at Penn State University presents some demographic trends regarding Puerto Rico’s demography and will tie it with economic outlooks.
