U.S. Census Data for Political and Social Research: A Resource Guide. Instructional Resource Monograph, No. 5.
Carter, Phyllis G.
The resource guide is designed to accompany a manual for students described in SO 009 851. The purpose of the manual is to provide the undergraduate with an overview of the data collected by the Bureau of the Census. To make the manual more effective, this resource guide supplements listings of Census Bureau materials, and indicates how census materials may be acquired. The resource guide also can stand on its own as a useful tool for the classroom teacher of political science. The first chapter presents information about the formats of Census Bureau statistics and how to obtain them. For example, census figures are available in microform, on computer tape, or in printed reports. The second chapter lists the various censuses, emphasizing the population, housing, and governmental censuses. Several appendices conclude the document, including the answers to the exercises of the student manual. Tables and charts are interspersed throughout the document. (JR)
