This report is a summarization of data on the Nation's youth, 14 to 24 years old, for selected years, 1910-1970. Data are included on their numbers, racial composition, school enrollment, educational attainment, marital status, family composition, fertility, migration, voter participation, labor force status, occupation, and income.
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.
