A Study of Selected Socio-Economic Characteristics of Ethnic Minorities Based on the 1970 Census. Volume IV: HEW Regional Data.
RJ Associates, Inc., Arlington, VA.
Prepared as a backup resource document to the three-volume study of the socioeconomic characteristics of the ethnic minorities, this report presents data on the socioeconomic characteristics of the ethnic minorities in each of the 10 HEW regions. Data on over 20 major economic and social indices were accumulated for the major subgroups in each region. Available data are presented in comparison with data on the characteristics of the total population, Blacks, and the Spanish speaking population in that region. Tabular data for each region indicate: (1) from which states (and in some cases, cities) the available regional data have been drawn; (2) the percentage of the region's total subgroup population represented by the detailed information; (3) the percentage of that subgroup's national population living in the region; and (4) the percentage of the region's total population, all races included, each subgroup represents. In some cases, the characteristics of a subgroup population are based on a single state, even a single city, if that were the only data available. When no detailed data on a particular subgroup are available, only summary data on the subgroup population are provided. (NQ)
