Calculating Residence: A Cognitive Approach to Household Membership Judgments Among Low Income Blacks

Eleanor R. Gerber

ABSTRACT

This summary presents the findings of a preliminary attempt to determine whether the methods of cognitive anthropology can shed light on the problems of minority undercounting. It presents the results of an initial investigation of the conceptual system which informants (who were primarily poor and Black) use to understand the assignment of individuals to living space.
