The Nation's Youth.
Herzog, Elizabeth; Richards, Catharine
This chart book presents basic data on the youth of the United States, the conditions under which they grow up, and selected facets of that process. The first section of charts indicates the relative size of the population of children and youth, and its urban-rural distribution. The charts following describe aspects of the environments that nurture or fail to nurture children and youth. Family size, composition, and income levels are shown in relation to color; income level appears as the significant variable in a number of differences. A section describes youth as they attain adult status, and educational employment trends as related to socioeconomic variables. The last section is concerned with some of the serious physical and mental health conditions that continue to handicap children and youth. (BP)
