Indian Resident Survey.
Peacock, Eugene G.
The 1966 resident survey was conducted to gain definite information on the numbers and locations of Indian residents of Duluth, Minnesota. The report focuses on the socioeconomic conditions of the 160 Indian families surveyed. Lack of education was reported to be one of the main problems; only 7% of the city's Indian population had completed high school. In addition, Duluth Indians generally had poor work records as a result of part-time employment and/or personal problems. Substandard living conditions existed for the Indians due to the fact that the families surveyed had annual incomes of less than $3,000. Statistics regarding the population are given in the areas of marital status, education, employment and income status, housing, and medical insurance. Recommendations for improved services for the Indians of Duluth are given, and the survey instrument is appended. (EL)
