Goldsmith, Harold F.; And Others
Utilizing 1970 census statistics for metropolitan, nonmetropolitan, rural, and "all" counties, this paper presents the selected percentile values for the 130 statistics (social indicators) in the Mental Health Demographic Profile System (the MHDPS is a system which allows the delineation of residential areas with common social rank, life style, ethnicity, and other related characteristics and permits inferences re: social service needs among comparable populations). The MHDPS contains indicators of the major components of the social rank dimension--economic status, social status (occupation), and information status (education); the life style dimension--family status, family life cycle stage, residential life style, and familism; and ethnicity dimensions--community stability, area homogeneity, and populations with high risk of social problems.
