Menominee: Wisconsin's 72nd County.
Weidemann, Wayne H.; Fuguitt, Glenn V.
Menominee Indian Reservation became a county after the 1960 Census of Population; therefore, data for the county as a unit were distributed throughout the census publication and appeared as civil division tabulation. This 1963 report attempts to compile these data, as well as data from previous census publications, and present them in easily accessible form. Part I describes the population characteristics and gives historical information on the change from a reservation, administered by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, to a county. Part II discusses the people of Menominee County in terms of such variables as age, racial composition, marital status, family characteristics, education, employment, and housing. It is concluded that the people in the county face many problems, some due to the small population and some due to the fact that the major source of income and revenue is concentrated in the lumber industry. It is suggested that the Menominee people may need the continued guidance of governmental officials or agencies while they are learning to administer their own affairs after being under Federal supervision for several generations.
