The Relationship of Neighborhood Characteristics to the Participation of Young People in Teacher Education at CUNY Colleges.
Olds, Edward B.
A study was undertaken to provide planners, educators, administrators, and citizen leaders with basic information on neighborhood environmental characteristics related to extending educational opportunities--with emphasis on teacher education--in New York City. Correlation and factor analyses of data from 1960 census tabulations and from various city agencies were used to develop socioeconomic and family status indexes. The 338 health areas (statistical areas used by city agencies) were classified into 15 types according to the indexes. A profile was produced for each of the areas, each of the types, and each of the five buroughs, plus one for the city total. Profiles provide data concerning 50 variables which include ethnicity and geographic mobility indicators, juvenile delinquency rates, and City University of New York (CUNY) teacher education census data, in addition to the socioeconomic and family status indicators. Pairs of maps were also prepared to show the geographic patterning for each of the variables on the profiles. Profiles and maps may be procured from CUNY at the cost of reproduction. (Included are five chapters discussing the rationale for the study and potential uses of the data, materials, and methods developed. Appended are additional statistical data and tabulations including tables of 1960, 1965, and 1966 data on percent of population nonwhite or Puerto Rican in each area.) (JS)
