More People Without Jobs: The Case of Remote Alaskan Settlements. Final Report.
Wisconsin State Univ., Superior.
While individuals from outside Alaska are recruited at premium pay, attracted with various monetary incentives, the Alaska Native experiences an extremely high rate of population increase which constitutes a virtually wasted labor reservoir. This study is intended as a benchmark approach against which the rate of progress of the Alaska Native might be measured and evaluated as he is involved in the development of Alaska. Discussed are: (1) rising trends in population; (2) change in living patterns from nomadic to sedentary; (3) uneven economic patterns; (4) cultural and educational attitudes; and (5) land uses and potentialities. It is anticipated that this study will provide a basis for further work and that the material will be available for comparison with information from the 1970 census. (Author/CJ)
