Michigan's Minorities at the Mid-Seventies: Indians, Blacks, Chicanos.
Steele, Marilyn; Langs, Walter, Jr.
The purpose of this position paper is to create awareness among decision makers and staff of Michigan foundations of the current status of Michigan residents who are Indian, Black, and Chicano minorities. An historic overview of the Indian, Black, and Spanish language populations in Michigan begins the paper. Indicators of current conditions of life for minorities are presented in order of importance in sustaining human life. The survival cycle is described as a measurable cluster of employment, income, poverty, health, housing, and education. Presentation of the survival cycle is divided into chapters on economic status, health, housing, and education. Data was obtained from either the census of 1970 or from state agencies and from three special studies of the Michigan Health Survey. Other chapters deal with public order, group memberships, migrants, and grants to minorities. Summary charts for each county present a profile of the key factors discussed in the report. An analysis of Michigan's health and lists of persons interviewed and of panel participants are appended. A bibliography is included. (Author/KSM)
