Virginia's Population: A Decade of Change. Socioeconomic Characteristics.
Serow, William J.; Spar, Michael A.
This monograph considers four major socioeconomic indicators: mobility, education, employment, and income. The first chapter of this report summarizes these indicators for the State and provides data which indicate trends in these variables. Each is then separately considered in a chapter where data are provided at the planning district level. Individual chapters are devoted to mobility, education, employment and labor force, occupation, and income. These are followed by chapters analyzing white-nonwhite and urban-rural differentials. The final chapter explores the interrelationships between mobility, education, employment, and income and the impact which changes in some of these variables might have on the others. The two measures of mobility which are used in this analysis are place of birth and place of residence in 1965. The effects on mobility of the high concentration of military personnel and the presence of colleges and universities in certain areas of the state are considered. Data are provided on the educational achievement of Virginia's population. Data on the labor force include the occupational composition of workers, the industrial composition of the labor force, and the rate of labor force participation of various age-race-sex groups of the population.
