Woods, Richard G.; Harkins, Arthur M.
This report compares the characteristics of Indian American new court commitments with the characteristics of Negro, Mexican-American, and white new court commitments during the same period of time. A total of three categories of individuals was examined, juveniles, youth, adults. The populations used are not representative of the ethnic groups in question, however, the data may be useful in pointing up characteristics which are socially, if not statistically, significant. Data were collected concerning: (1) ethnic comparisons; (2) place of birth; (3) Minnesota County of Residence; (4) place of residence; (5) previous correctional histories; (6) marital status and living situation; (7) religion; (8) intelligence estimate; (9) educational attainment; (10) occupational skill level; (11) current employment status; and (12) previous psychiatric treatment and presentence psychiatric evaluation.
