Nelson, Bardin H.; And Others
The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship of socioeconomic variables and selected attitudinal factors to the levels of living of rural families in low income counties in the South. A total of 1,474 white and Negro families from 7 Southern States (Alabama, Kentucy, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas) were interviewed during 1960 and 1961. Findings reported were that socioeconomic status was positively related to race and educational level and negatively related to size of family. No measure of attitudes was highly associated with socioeconomic level. (TL)
