Head Start Programs and Participants 1965-1967.
Office of Economic Opportunity, Washington, DC.
This report describes the children, their families, and staff members who have participated in Project Head Start from its inception in the summer of 1965 through 1967. The information has been compiled from tabulations of data prepared by the Bureau of Census and offers a general picture of the populations served to date and where possible includes program information. The report is divided into six sections and includes both an introduction and an overview. These sections represent a description of the Head Start children and their families, the medical status of the children, center information where available, staff member characteristics, evaluation of the program, and parent activities. Tables included with each section consist of item frequency distributions of the data collected to date. The data depict selected trends in the composition and characteristics of the Head Start participants by comparing them from one program term to the next. The overview provides a context for interpreting the data. The paper is planned to be suggestive of leads for additional and more refined analysis of data, and should be useful in both program planning and the design of research and evaluative studies related to Head Start.
