The papers in this collection were presented at a conference held in June 1967 with the avowed purpose of arousing a measure of public concern about the difficulties encountered by the Census in obtaining a full count of the urban poor, especially perhaps the Negro poor. It became apparent, for example, that in 1960 one fifth of nonwhite males aged 25-29 had in effect disappeared and had been left out of the Census count altogether

The Boston rehabilitation program, an independent analysis by Langley Carleton Keyes( Book )

5 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Burp, The Boston Rehabilitation Program, is described and analyzed in this monograph published by the Joint Center for Urban Studies. Its purpose is to provide an independent analysis of burp as a political, economic, and social event. Examination is given to the nation's first effort to carry out large-scale residential rehabilitation in blighted or near-blighted neighborhoods quickly and economically. The project served as a means of providing moderate-income housing, as a mechanism for rehabilitating the housing of the central city, and as an expenditure of public resources. Presented in the report is an analysis of the political context within which burp arose and was carried out, the innovations of the Federal Housing Administration system which made the project possible, the characteristics of the burp developer-sponsors, the efforts made to overcome the flaws in the program's initial conception, and, finally, the quality of the rehabilitated units. It is a balanced analysis of the merits and demerits of a complex and controversial federal effort to rehabilitate old neighborhoods. (Bl)
