Educational Projections of Rural Louisiana Youth: A Historical Comparison.
Ohlendorf, George W.
Changes in educational projections among rural Louisiana high school youths in 1968 and 1972 were examined. A proportionate, stratified, random cluster sampling technique was used to sample students from 20 schools in 4 geographical areas representing different social and economic characteristics. Data were collected by an 18-page version of the 1968 S-61 Southern Youth Study questionnaire and group interviews. Interviews, which took 60 minutes to administer, were conducted by staff members of the Department of Rural Sociology at Louisiana State University. The 1968 questionnaire was slightly modified in 1972. The sample included 542 seniors (325 whites and 217 blacks) in 1968 and 453 seniors (312 whites and 141 blacks) in 1972. The findings of this study are presented in tabular form. (NQ)
