The fourteen statistical tables compiled in this report were obtained from questionnaires from the 1970 population census and followup phone calls and personal visits. In considering persons with work disabilities, the following variables were used to arrange the data tables: duration of work disability, type of residence, race, Spanish origin, sex, age, household relationship, marital status, years of school completed, vocational training, employment status, age of family head, type of family, number of related children under 18 years, major occupation, work experience in 1969, earnings in 1969, type of earnings, total family income in 1969, and presence of work disability. These statistics pertain to the noninstitutional population 18 to 64 years old in the United States. The five appendixes provide general information concerning the presentation of data and the census collection and processing procedures; describe the area classifications and residence rules; provide brief definitions and explanations of subjects covered in cross-classifications; present information on sources of error in the data, sampling variability, ratio estimation, and editing procedures; and summarize the data dissemination program.
