Negro Californians: Population, Employment, Income, Education (and Supplement).
California State Dept. of Industrial Relations, San Francisco. Fair Employment Practices Commission.
The Negro population in California increased sevenfold from 1940 to 1960 due principally to in-migration from other states. Settlement of immigrants occurred in urban areas. Educational attainment of Negroes in California is lower than that of white Californians reflecting social, economic, and educational restrictions. Employment statistics show a disproportionate number of Negroes employed in service industries and public administration. The unemployment rate for nonwhite men in California in 1960 was twice that of white men. Median income for Negroes was below median incomes for both white and nonwhite non-Negro groups. More than 90 percent of job discrimination complaints received by the California Fair Employment Practice Commission were filed by Negroes. Tables of statistics on population, employment, income, and education constitute the majority of the document. The "Supplement to Negro Californians" contains some of the additional facts published in the more detailed Census report. (JH)
