Employment, Unemployment, and Low Incomes in Appalachia.
Pennsylvania State Univ., University Park. Pennsylvania Agricultural Experiment Station.
A detailed study of Appalachia based, on the 1950 and 1960 census records, concentrates on the economic conditions existing in the area and considers possible solutions to the problems. Economic considerations of Appalachian subareas include low income, unemployment, composite patterns of low income and unemployment, employment, and implications of these patterns for the future of the area. The report indicates a dire need for more studies in depressed areas. Constant updating, as stated in this report, is essential to planning effective and efficient programs for combating poverty problems. The study includes several maps and charts to aid in understanding the problems, plus four appendices of statistical data. (DB)
