This factbook on youth employment contains 58 graphs and tables of data concerning social and economic indicators of the employment and employability development of youth aged 14 to 24 as per 1979. Indicators examined are population growth and distribution, marital and family status, educational status, labor force and employment status by socioeconomic characteristics, historical trends of labor force and employment status, and crime and delinquency status. Included among the variables considered in the tables covering population are age, sex, race, and rural or urban residence. Data concerning marital, family, and educational status are broken down by age, race, and school status. Presented in the sections on labor force and employment status are data on labor force participation rates, employment and unemployment rates, employment population ratios, and major occupation group by age, marital and family status, employment status, race, and sex. Percent distributions of persons under 18 arrested by age and type of offense, area of residence, sex, and crime and estimated number of delinquency cases processed nationally through intake and juvenile courts by sex and type of court are calculated in the final section.
