Bureau of the Census (DOC), Suitland, MD. Population Div.
This packet includes six statistical profiles of American Indians and Alaska Natives based on the 1980 census, and a report on 1990 census plans for Native Americans. Three general profiles outline statistics on: (1) the American Indian population as a whole; (2) selected characteristics of American Indian men; and (3) selected characteristics of American Indian women. Each of these profiles contains bar graphs illustrating statistics on total population, regional population, media age, educational attainment, families maintained by men and women, unemployment rates, labor force participation rates, median family income, poverty rates, and occupations. The first profile also provides statistics on population distribution of American Indians in the United States as a whole and in the 10 largest American Indian reservations. "A Statistical Profile of the American Indian Population for the Top Ten States with the Largest Number of American Indians: 1980" compares many of the above items for California, Oklahoma, Arizona, New Mexico, North Carolina, Washington, South Dakota, Michigan, Texas, New York, and the United States.

"Educational Characteristics for the American Indian, Eskimo, and Aleut Population in the United States: 1980" details information on school enrollment by age and educational level and on high school and college graduates by age and sex. "1990 Census Plans for American Indians and Alaska Natives" outlines outreach and planning efforts, the tribal and village liaison program, goals for census data products, the local review program, and geographic issues.
