New Mexico State Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, Santa Fe.
The report briefly outlines the population characteristics, public employment and political representation status of the Dona Ana, Grant, Hidalgo, Luna, Otero, and Sierra counties in southern New Mexico for a 10-year period. The three sections of each profile focus on the city government, largest city in that county, and school district encompassing that municipality. Information in each profile includes: demographic data for 1970 and 1980 describing the composition of the population; its income and poverty status, and changes in population base over a 10-year period; composition of elected state, county, and city officials by race, ethnicity, and sex for the years from 1969 to 1983; county and city governments' work force by race, ethnicity, sex, and job classification as of 1982; enrollment data for the largest district in the county by race and ethnicity for selected school years from the 1968-69 to the 1983-84 school terms; composition of the district's school board by race, ethnicity, and sex for 1973 to 1983; and the district's work force by race, ethnicity, sex, and job classification as of the 1982-83 school year. A section describing the geographical scope, data sources, and methodologies used to compile and analyze the data concludes the report. (NQA)
