Social Indicators, 1973. Selected Statistics on Social Conditions and Trends in the United States.
Office of Management and Budget, Washington, DC. Statistical Policy Div.
The book contains statistics selected and organized to describe social conditions and trends in the United States. Most of the data was compiled through Federal Government surveys. The following eight major social areas are examined: health, public safety, education, employment income, housing, leisure and recreation, and population. Within each of these categories areas of social concerns are identified. The concerns selected reveal the general status of the entire population, depict conditions that are, or are likely to be, dealt with by national policies, and encompass many of the important issues facing the nation. An indicator shows the status of the population in relation to each particular concern. The indicators presented are restricted almost entirely to data about objective conditions and are primarily time series showing national totals. In almost every case the national totals are disaggregated to show the age, sex, and racial characteristics of the population. Each of the eight chapters contains a brief text, charts, technical notes, and tables. Sources for data shown in the charts are given in the tables. (Author/RM)
