Counting the Nation's Homeless Population in the 1990 Census by Cynthia Murray Taeuber( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper describes how decisions were made on procedures for counting the homeless population for the 1990 census. These topics are covered: (1) reasons the Census Bureau did not specifically label anyone as "homeless" while still including homeless persons in the census; (2) how the lists of sites where homeless persons might be found were compiled; (3) enumeration procedures, including procedures for shelters, streets, abandoned buildings, places of commerce, and open public locations; (4) what happened on "Shelter and Street Night" ("S-Night"), including media activity, hiring census takers, and training and payment; (5) impressions of data quality, including the count in shelters, the count of persons visible in the streets, and coverage of "doubled-up" families; and (6) publication of data. It is concluded that the Census Bureau had an effective method that was practical within the constraints of a decennial census and that many persons were added to the census who otherwise would have been missed; however, concern is expressed about the count of persons visible in the street. It is noted that information about limitations to the data are available to all users, and certain "lessons" for future improvements learned from S-Night are outlined. In general, the report finds that selected major components of the homeless population have been included and that the 1990 Census was an opportunity to get a clearer idea of the demographic diversity of homeless persons as well as of differences among areas of the country. A glossary of terms is included. (Abl)
School Enrollment Social and Economic Characteristics of Students: October 1982. Current Population Reports: Population Characteristics by Paul M Siegel( Book )

This publication's 25 tables display statistics related to enrollment and student characteristics in 1982 at all levels of education from nursery school through the undergraduate years of college. The tables break enrollment figures down to show the numbers enrolled at each level according to age, race, sex, national origin, regional location, marital status, and income. Text introducing the tables discusses major findings and isolates significant trends, paying particular attention to changes between 1972 and 1982. Among these changes have been declines in the number of students enrolled in elementary and secondary schools and increases in the number enrolled in nursery school programs and colleges. The publication also provides appendices including tables with supplementary information; definitions and explanations about the information provided; and a discussion of the sources and reliability of the data used and the estimates based on the data.

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

During the night of March 20-21, 1990, the Census Bureau counted 179,000 persons in emergency shelters for the homeless as part of its S-night effort to include homeless persons in the 1990 Decennial Census. As part of the evaluation of S-night, in a sample of Census district offices, local experts complied lists of emergency shelters independently of the lists compiled in the Census process. Narrative reporjts from th elocal experts, some field investigations, and a survey of district ofrfice specialists provide the basis for selecting models of the relation between Census and expert lists which allow estimates of shelter coverage to be derived
