Poverty Areas in Large Cities. 1980 Census of Population. Volume 2: Subject Reports.
Bureau of the Census (DOC), Suitland, MD.
This report presents sample data from the 1980 Census on the social, economic, and housing characteristics of the population living in the 100 largest central cities in the United States, the Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas (SMSA's) of which they are a part, and the poverty areas of the SMSA's. The first four tables (S-1 through S-4) summarize the information given in greater detail in the main tables (1 through 8). These present detailed statistics for the 100 cities combined and for each of these cities in alphabetical order. Immediately following the data for New York City are data for each of the city's five counties. The content of the 8 main tables are as follows: (1) poverty status in 1979 and other selected characteristics of persons, families, and occupied housing units in census tracts classified by alternate poverty rates; (2) household relationship of persons, families, and unrelated individuals; (3) age, school enrollment, and educational attainment; (4) labor force status and labor force status in 1979 of persons and families; (5) income in 1979 of families and unrelated individuals; (6) income type in 1979 of families and unrelated individuals; (7) selected characteristics of occupied housing units; and (8) value and rent of occupied housing units. Most of these tables break down the data presented by poverty status in 1979, poverty area residence, and race and Spanish origin. Additionally, Table A-1 lists persons included and type of persons not included in statistics in this report, for SMSA's with the 100 largest central cities, and Table A-2 shows percent of allocation for nonresponse for selected characteristics for SMSA's with the 100 largest central cities. Appendices provide information on census methodology and questionnaires. (KH)
