Ten-State Nutrition Survey in the United States, 1968-70. Preliminary Report to the Congress, April 1971.
Center for Disease Control (DHEW/PHS), Atlanta, GA.
This report of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare to the Congress concerns the nutrition of people living in 10 states, from 1968-70. The data presented in this booklet present the preliminary findings for New York City and New York State. The data represent selected characteristics and findings in the population groups that were studied. The intent of the surveys was to determine the nutrition levels of disadvantaged families rather than provide a true picture of a cross section of the total population. Sampling selection was based on 1970 census data, although the actual survey was instituted in June 1968 and not concluded until May 1970. Because of the incomplete nature of the data forming the basis of this report, it is considered that one should be cautious in drawing conclusions. Characteristics of the population sampled (education, age, income, ethnic group) and biochemistries as well as anthropometry (height and weight) and diet are the kinds of information presented.
