Demographic Aspects of the Black Community.
Kiser, Clyde V.
Milbank Memorial Fund Quarterly, v48 n2 p2 April 1970
This volume contains the Proceedings of the Conference on "Demographic Aspects of the Black Community," held in 1969, and organized by the Milbank Memorial Fund. The Conference was held with the belief that knowledge of demographic characteristics and trends of the black community is essential to better understanding of various problems of the black community such as jobs, housing, health, education, and civil rights. The four "parts" of this volume correspond to the four half-day sessions of the Conference: (1) background information on demographic trends, urbanization of blacks, and patterns of negro-white residential segregation; (2) marriage and the family; (3) fertility and family planning; and, (4) needed research on demographic aspects of the black community. In addition, all four parts contain a record of the informal discussion as well as statistical charts. (Author/SB)
