Discrimination and Low Incomes; Social and Economic Discrimination Against Minority Groups in Relation to Low Incomes in New York State.
Antonovsky, Aaron, Ed.; Lorwin, Lewis L., Ed.
This study under the direction of the N.Y. State Commission Against Discrimination (SCAD) investigated the relationship of low incomes to social and economic discrimination against Negroes and Puerto Ricans in New York State. The scope of the study included analyses by various authors of the present economic status of Negroes and Puerto Ricans, the limitations of their earning capacities and income, and developments most likely to affect their future employment opportunities. For the purpose of this study $2,000.00 annual family income was assumed to be the poverty line. The document includes recommendations drawn from the implications of the studies, basic facts about the economic status of New York's minority groups, illustrations by specific cases, and a theoretical summation of the social meaning of discrimination. A 54 page appendix follows which includes tables and questionnaires used in collecting the data. (RG)
