Estimates of Resident Indian Population and Labor Force Status; By State and Reservation: March 1973.
Bureau of Indian Affairs (Dept. of Interior), Washington, DC.
The labor force report includes all American Indians 16 years and older except for those who cannot work because they are attending school, caring for children, or because of disability, retirement, or age. The total population distributed by broad age groups and by sex is given. Labor force status is not known for the various age groups. Since information is lacking, labor force status is not estimated for over 30,000 Indians, mostly the rural California group. The local agency offices of the Bureau of Indian Affairs estimate the figures using whatever information is available. Accuracy varies from place to place; it is particularly difficult to estimate for Alaska, Oklahoma, and the Navajo reservation where Indians are scattered over enormous geographic areas. The term resident Indian means Indians living on or near Federal reservations. It also includes Indians living in former reservation areas of Oklahoma, and all Indians and Alaska Natives in Alaska.
