In addition to presenting detailed accounts from 30 committees which comprise the Council, the report includes a staff essay on social development during early childhood. The report indicates that the Council pursued the advancement of research in the social sciences during fiscal 1974 in a variety of ways, including the establishment of several new committees of scholars; the improvement of training for research through summer institutes, conferences, and grants; and the encouragement of social science research publications.
