The Ethnic Composition of Rural Youth in the United States: General Characteristics and Regional Comparisons. Information Report No. 73-3.
Jimenez, Luis A.
Population characteristics of rural youth (persons under 25 years of age) living in the rural areas of the four national regions of North Central, Northeast, West, and South are presented. Emphasis is placed on describing the racial and ethnic variations shown by the target population; focus is on the regional distribution of ethnic minority groups: blacks, American Indians, and youth of Spanish heritage. Data were collected from various 1970 U.S. Census of Population final reports. This report is organized into six basic sections--five sections contain the analytical text and one presents detailed tabular data by regions. The analytical text discusses: (1) the youth of the nation, (2) the rural population under 25 by region, (3) regional comparisons, (4) the regional distribution of rural ethnic minority youth, and (5) findings, a brief summary. Tabular data provide figures on the total and rural populations under 25 in the U.S., organized by race or ethnic groups, sex, age subgroups, and regions. Definitions of technical terms used are provided in the appendix. (NQ)
