Characteristics of Selected Neighborhoods in Cleveland, Ohio: April 1965

Report Number P23-21

This report presents the results of tabulations of sample data from the special census of Cleveland, taken as of April 1, 1965. This census was conducted by the Bureau of the Census primarily as a means of testing the mail-out mail-back procedures which are under consideration for the 1970 Census of Population and Housing.

Results are presented for nine selected neighborhoods and for the balance of the city, with totals for the city as a whole. (See map.) With the exception of the Mt. Pleasant area, these neighborhoods represent essentially subdivisions of the Cleveland "Poverty Area" which was delineated by the Bureau of the Census as a part of its work for the Office of Economic Opportunity.

Although the Mt. Pleasant area does not fall into the Cleveland "Poverty Area," it was included as a separate neighborhood on the recommendation of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission. The census tracts included in the individual neighborhoods were selected to approximate the planning areas of the Cleveland Welfare Federation for which other local data such as juvenile delinquency and public assistance rates are available. In six of these neighborhoods, the population was predominantly Negro, and in the remaining three, predominantly White.

Information is presented for the following items: race, age, relationship to head of household, marital status, married couples and families, school enrollment, years of school completed, residence in 1960, family income in 1964, employment status, occupation, industry, class of worker, and poverty level. The tables also include comparable statistics from the 1960 Census on each of these subjects.

A Note on Language

Census statistics date back to 1790 and reflect the growth and change of the United States. Past census reports contain some terms that today’s readers may consider obsolete and inappropriate. As part of our goal to be open and transparent with the public, we are improving access to all Census Bureau original publications and statistics, which serve as a guide to the nation's history.
