This population report describes young persons between the ages of 14 and 24 born during a period of high birth rates that followed the end of the Second World War. It includes data on their numbers, racial composition, school enrollment; educational attainment; marital status, family composition, fertility, migration, voting behavior, labor force status, occupation, income, and veteran status. It presents extensive tables that analyze each variable and that show their interaction. Obtained from the March and October 1972 Current Population Survey conducted by the Bureau of the Census, the data may reflect some error from response, reporting, and sample variability; however, the report provides tables for deducing standard error measures.
