A Profile of Disabled Household Heads and Spouses in Rural Areas of the Ozarks Region.
Holmes, O. Wendell
In this sequel to the report of a 1966 survey of 1,413 household heads in rural areas of the Ozarks region, socioeconomic conditions are discussed for the 439 household heads who had reported total or partial disabilities. Of the 439 households, 41% were in poverty. Household heads' incomes were small because many heads were unable to hold regular jobs and most heads were of advanced age. They generally had low level employment skills, and very few of the heads had completed high school. Nearly 44% of those who had jobs were farmers. Medical expenses in households were quite high, and only 70% of the heads had health insurance. A related document in ED 043 407. (Author/NQ)
