EFFECTS OF OUTMIGRATION ON EDUCATIONAL LEVEL OF NEGRO MALES IN SOUTHERN UNITED STATES.
PRICE, DANIEL O.
THE EFFECTS OF OUTMIGRATION OF NEGRO MALES ON THE POPULATION EDUCATIONAL LEVEL OF SOUTHERN UNITED STATES WERE DETERMINED BY TWO ANALYSES OF CENSUS DATA. RESULTS INDICATED A GENERAL LOWERING OF THE EDUCATIONAL LEVEL OF THE REGION WITH INMIGRANTS INTO THE SOUTH HAVING A LOWER LEVEL OF EDUCATION THAN INMIGRANTS INTO OTHER REGIONS, WHILE OUTMIGRANTS FROM THE SOUTH WERE YOUNGER AND HAD A HIGHER LEVEL OF EDUCATION THAN THE REMAINING POPULATION. OUTMIGRANCY TRENDS APPEAR TO HAVE BEEN INFLUENCED BY THE CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS AT NEGRO COLLEGES AS RESIDENTS OF THE REGION. THE SECOND PART OF THE STUDY WAS EXPANDED TO INCLUDE SECESSIONIST SOUTHERN STATES EXCEPT FLORIDA. THIS ANALYSIS INDICATED THAT THOSE WITH THE LOWEST LEVELS OF EDUCATION WERE THE MOST LIKELY TO MIGRATE, WHILE THOSE WITH LESS THAN A HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION HAD THE HIGHEST OUTMIGRANCY RATES. A GENERAL TREND OF INCREASING OUTMIGRANCY OF YOUNG NONWHITE MALES WAS NOTED. DATA TABLES COMPILED FROM THE 1940, 1950, AND 1960 CENSUSES ARE INCLUDED. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE UNITED NATIONS WORLD POPULATION CONFERENCE (BELGRADE, AUGUST 30 - SEPTEMBER 10, 1965). (FS)
