Office of Child Development (DHEW), Washington, DC.
This report is the second in a series designed to describe children, their families, and staff members who have participated in Project Head Start center activities. The data depicts center and participant characteristics for the Full Year 1967-1968 and Summer 1968 Head Start programs, and, in combination with data in the report on previous programs (See Project Head Start 1965-1967: A Descriptive Report of Programs and Participants, ED 034 569), provide comparative information over time. The Bureau of the Census selected separate samples for the Full Year 1968 and Summer 1968 programs. The sampling design and procedures for centers, classes, and children remained the same as those employed in the 1965-1967 program. Data is provided on (a) children and their families, (b) medical and dental information, (c) center information, (d) staff member characteristics, and (e) parent participation. The appendix contains directions and questionnaires sent to center directors requesting program information. (WY)
