Black Americans: A Statistical Sourcebook.
Hornor, Louise L., Ed.
This sourcebook in the 7th year of its annual publication is the second in a series of statistical sourcebooks covering significant topics in American life. It addresses the need for a single volume statistical reference through a collection of tables that display information on a wide variety of topics. With a few exceptions, each table presents information about the black population, the white population, and a total for U.S. population of all races and ethnic groups. All of the information comes originally or by way of replication from the Federal Government, and is largely from the Bureau of the Census. The book is divided into eight chapters of tables: (1) "Demographics and Characteristics of the Population"; (2) "Vital Statistics and Health"; (3) "Education"; (4)"Government and Elections"; (5) "Crime, Law Enforcement, and Corrections"; (6) "The Labor Force, Employment and Unemployment"; (7) "Earnings, Income, Poverty, and Wealth"; and (8) "Special Topics." Tables in each chapter represent results of a comprehensive review of all available government statistical information. A glossary is included to clarify terminology. (Contains 187 tables.) (SLD)
