Socio-economic Characteristics of the Mississippi Choctaw Indians.
Peterson, John H., Jr.
The socioeconomic condition of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians was surveyed in the fall of 1968. Using a questionnaire, 570 Choctaw households in 7 communities were interviewed by Choctaw Agency personnel. Information gathered included population figures by age, sex, and residence; educational attainment, aspirations, and use of English; present occupation, occupational aspirations, and cash income per household; and social and economic relations. The intent of this report was to present the socioeconomic condition of the Choctaw people in statistical form to be of value (1) to officials of the Choctaw Tribe and the Choctaw Agency of the Bureau of Indian Affairs and (2) to vocational educators who have recognized the need for detailed information about specific populations in order to plan vocational programs at the local level. Included in the report are 42 tables. (JH)
