Blacks and Whites: An Experiment in Racial Indicators.
Flax, Michael J.
This report deals with the question of racial equality, and attempts to present a balanced view of recent trends. The method of the report is to present indicator data for both blacks and whites over the period 1960 to 1968, relating to measurable social and economic matters. The data address such issues as: (1) comparisons of the levels of important indicators for blacks and whites; (2) comparisons of the rate of change in these indicators; and, (3) implications of both the levels and rates of change for equality and future change. Relatively few sets of racial indicators have been published, even though indicators in the economic field are widely accepted and used. This work is an experimental approach and part of a long term effort. (Author/DM)
