1970 Census of Population and Housing: Employment Profiles of Selected Low-Income Areas

Report Number PHC(3)

This report presents statistics from the Census Employment Survey (CES), conducted as part of the overall program of the 1970 Census of Population and Housing. Detailed socio-economic information on employment related problems was collected in each of 60 urban and 7 rural areas, identified first by reference to 1960 Census data and subsequently corroborated by a variety of local sources as likely to contain relatively high proportions of persons with low income. This method of selecting the areas to be studied was used because the timing of the study precluded the use of up-to-date data from the 1970 Census and the needs of the study dictated current area appraisals. The designated areas used in the CES, therefore, differ from and are not to be confused with other low income or poverty areas that have been defined in the past for other purposes or that may be defined subsequently using information from the 1970 Decennial Census.

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.
