Knowledgeables' Opinions of Changes in Agriculture and Business in Twenty-six Counties, 1960-1972, S-79 Regional Research Project.
Steelman, Virginia Purtle
The paper examined the opinions of black and white knowledgeables in 26 counties of Alabama, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Tennessee pertaining to changes in agriculture and business from 1960 to 1972. Respondents were questioned about changes in business, industry, employment opportunities, real income, local businessmen's status, wage earners' status, youth opportunities, and economic prospects for the next 10 years. The results indicated that the majority of the knowledgeables in the 26 study areas believed the business and industry situation in their respective counties had improved in the last 10 years and this trend would continue in spite of a less than optimistic view about existing youth opportunities. Tabular data is given for each county. (NQ)
