Minority Group - Governmental Agency Relations.
Adams, Darrell K.; And Others
The purpose of this 1966 study was to explore the relationships between minority groups and selected governmental agencies in Colorado in order to determine if discrimination was practiced in the agencies. A 2-part study was designed. The first part was restricted to the Denver area and was structured to determine which governmental agencies should be studied in depth. Agencies selected for detailed study were public hospitals, police departments, and state employment offices. The second, or follow-up phase, attempted to examine in detail the nature and pattern of contacts between minority persons and the governmental agencies designated in the first part of the study. Some 344 Anglo Americans, Negroes, and Spanish Americans were interviewed, and it was found that city agencies were contacted most often, followed by federal agencies and then state agencies. It was concluded that some discriminatory conduct had been observed. The document is appended with information on procedures used in observing discrimination procedures and with answers to major queries regarding the report after its initial release. (TL)
