Population Profiles, Vol. 4: 1970 Demographic and Socioeconomic Profiles of the American Indian Population of Washington State.
The State of Washington ranks fifth nationally in total urban American Indian population. There were 13,126 Indian students enrolled in Washington public schools in school year 1972-73. Of all the racial groups in the State, Indians are the most socioeconomically disadvantaged on the basis of educational level, income level, poverty status, and occupational categorizations. Demographic and socioeconomic data for the Indians of the State are detailed for reference use in Washington State educational programs. Tabular demographic and socioeconomic data from the 1970 U.S. Census have been portrayed for urban and rural Indians for the State and for selected areas. Particular emphasis has been placed on needs assessment data required by the Urban, Racial, and Rural Disadvantaged Programs of the Office of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction. The profiles are also designed to be of value in administering other categorical aid programs, as well as a wide variety of educational and curricular programs. Initial tables compare key characteristics of the Indian population and other ethnic and racial groups in tabular, graphical, and textual form. Similar key characteristic tables compare the total and urban Indian populations of Washington and the other two Pacific Coast States. Numerous statistical tables and charts comprise the majority of this document. (Author/AH)
