Statistical Record of Native North Americans. Second Edition.
Reddy, Marlita A., Ed.
This book compiles statistical data on Native North American populations, including Alaska and Canada Natives. Data sources include federal and state agencies, census records, tribal governments, associations, and other organizations. The book includes statistics on Native North Americans as compared with other racial and ethnic groups under specific subject headings, and on Native North Americans compared with one another (such as by reservation or other Indian area, by tribe, by sex, or by age). All tribal areas are represented in the population chapter. In all other cases, data are shown for the largest 50 reservations and for selected tribal areas. In rare cases, information is included for individual tribes (such as historical data on the Yani tribe). Data extend from 20th-century estimates of pre-European contact populations to population projections for 2050. Chapters include statistical tables on history, demographics, the family, education, culture and tradition, health and health care, social and economic conditions, business and industry, land and water management, government relations, law and law enforcement, and a special chapter on Canada. Within chapters, data are organized by topics. For example, in the chapter on education, topics include educational attainment, enrollment, academic progress, extracurricular activities, school environment, school personnel, federal government support, higher education enrollment, higher education degrees, higher education faculty, and higher education costs. Following each table a source is cited. The book also includes a guide that summarizes important data from each chapter, discusses the main sources consulted, and highlights issues and controversies surrounding data; a list of sources; and a keyword index of more than 3,500 terms covering subjects, concepts, institutions, and organizations.
