Profiles of Youth. 1971 White House Conference on Youth.
White House Conference on Youth, Washington, DC.
This resource book is a compilation of data about youth which was prepared for the participants of the White House Conference on Youth. The tabular data are divided into eleven sections. In the first section, the youth population, ages 14 through 24, is contrasted with the general population with respect to geographic location, race, marital status, and other demographic characteristics. In successive sections, age-related data, wherever possible, is presented on each of the ten issue areas of the 1971 Youth Conference -- Foreign Relations; Environment Race and Minority Groups Relations; Drugs, Education; The Draft, National Service and Alternatives; Poverty; Legal Rights and Justice; Economy and Employment; and Values; Ethics and Culture. Preceding the tables, is a brief graphic presentation, which highlights some of the data in chart form. There are some unavoidable gaps in the statistics on minority group populations such as Spanish Americans, Orientals, and American Indians. (FDI)
