Urban Minority Groups in Houston: Problems, Progress, and Prospects. A Statistical and Analytical Study.
Lede, Naomi W.; Dixon, Hortense W.
This document is one of a series about the conditions of blacks and other minorities in Houston, Texas. Statistics are presented on selected characteristics of minority persons in Houston and parts of Harris County. This document is designed to provide data in an organized and systematic way by bringing together in one convenient source socioeconomic facts about the minority community and by keeping the document constantly up to date through more current reports. Data for the central city and some suburban rings in close proximity to Houston proper are given when this type of distinction appears to be significant. The major areas treated in this report are: general socioeconomic characteristics, population and distribution, family and household size, education, employment and income, housing, poverty, politics, health, economic development statistics, and other pertinent data on minority problems and accomplishments. The preparation of the volume was guided by three major concerns: the assessment of problems; a review of progress or accomplishments in the light of civil rights legislation; and a general projection of future needs and prospects. Information in the volume is classified according to major socioeconomic and demographic areas. Also, within each area, various subtopics or subdivisions are used. (Author/JM)
