SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC CONDITIONS OF NEGROES IN THE UNITED STATES. CURRENT POPULATION REPORTS, SERIES P-23, NO. 24.
MILLER, HERMAN P.; NEWMAN, DOROTHY K.
THIS STATISTICAL REPORT ON CHANGES IN THE SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC LIFE OF AMERICAN NEGROES IS DERIVED PRIMARILY FROM CENSUS OR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT STUDIES. TEXTUAL AND TABULAR DATA ARE PRESENTED ON POPULATION DISTRIBUTION, INCOME, EMPLOYMENT, EDUCATION, HOUSING CONDITIONS, LIVING CONDITIONS AND HEALTH, THE FAMILY, MILITARY AND VOTING PARTICIPATION, AND CONDITIONS IN LOW INCOME AREAS. IT IS NOTED THAT SOME ASPECTS OF THESE CONDITIONS SHOW "GREAT IMPROVEMENT" WHEREAS OTHERS ARE DETERIORATING. MORE NEGROES THAN EVER BEFORE ARE BECOMING MIDDLE CLASS AND HAVE HIGHER INCOMES, MORE YEARS OF SCHOOLING, AND LOWER UNEMPLOYMENT RATES. HOWEVER FOR POOR NEGROES CONDITIONS ARE EITHER STAGNATING OR WORSENING. THIS DOCUMENT IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT OF DOCUMENTS, U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE, WASHINGTON, D.C. 20402, FOR $0.55. (NH)
