A Portrait of the Italian-American Community in New York City. Volume I.
This document, the first volume of the Congress of Italian-American Organizations Handbook, includes in addition to the normal perspective a handbook takes of the organization that it portrays, summaries of many of the statistics that have made CIAO's convictions possible and strong during the 1974 fiscal year. It begins with a review of previously established information about the Italian-Americans in New York. This information is derived primarily from census data on tract locations which contained at least 50 percent or more first and second generation Italian population. Other sources of information drawn on in the study were: (1) census figures (1970) on percentages of first and second generation Italian population in each tract; (2) the boundary lines of New York City's 26 poverty areas and "pockets of poverty;" these poverty areas are federally recognized and funded for a variety of programs; (3) Italian foreign stock population percentages in each health area of the city; (4) New York City health areas designated to be in the greatest need of poverty programs; (5) number of Italian-speaking children in New York City's public schools during the 1973-74 school year; (6) number of Italian bilingual programs operating in New York City public schools during the school year 1973-74, locations of these programs, and number of children said to be involved.
