The Status of Children, Youth and Families 1979.
Administration for Children, Youth, and Families (DHEW), Washington, DC.
This publication, third in a biennial series of reports, focuses on the status of children, youth and families in 1979. Chapter I discusses historical and current demographic and economic trends that have occurred in the characteristics and circumstances of the United States population. Chapter II attempts to capture the factor of time in human development (from conception to death) and identifies characteristics and potential problems of the various stages of life. Chapters III, IV and V discuss aspects of the status of children (number and distribution, economic environment, health and nutrition, and education); the status of youth (population growth, health, conditions and trends in education, employment, and special youth problems); and the status of families (employment and income, women in families, health, and programs affecting families). Several trends that characterize present research relating to children, youth and families are discussed in Chapters VI, VII, and VIII. (Author/MP)
