The report is divided into sections which detail the need for the study, previous research, implications for data collection procedures, technical aspects of the survey process, preliminary frequency distributions, and major findings. Introductory materials for the summary report are included, as are the summary report, an interviewer's manual, and sample questionnaires in both English and Spanish.
