American Indians in California: Population, Education, Employment, Income.
California State Dept. of Industrial Relations, San Francisco. Fair Employment Practices Commission.
Analysis of 1960 census statistics reveals that American Indians in California had the highest growth rate of any ethnic group in the state from 1950 to 19 0. This is attributed to improved health practices plus an in-migration of Indians from other states. Educational attainment of the American Indian in California is low compared with other ethnic groups, although significant improvement has occurred. Despite a population shift from rural to urban areas, the employment rate of Indians remains low due to lack of job skills. The median income for Indian families is the lowest of all ethnic groups in California. Statistical information on population, educational attainment, employment, and income is presented in tabular form at the end of the document. (JEH)
