We the Americans: Our Education. 1970 Census Report No. 8.
Bureau of the Census (DOC), Suitland, MD.
Information gleaned from the 1970 census and reported herein indicates that (1) more Americans than ever before are going to school; (2) Americans are starting school at an earlier age and staying in school longer; (3) for the first time, the average American adult has completed high school; (4) people who live in urban areas have a higher level of education than do those in rural areas; (5) although a higher percentage of Non-Spanish finish high school than do black students, these minorities are closing the gap; and (6) there is a definite relationship between level of education and the kinds of jobs people hold and how much they are paid. A number of other statistical analyses are presented. (Author/JF)
