Data are based on household interviews during ‘July 1957-June 1959. Data refer to the civilian noninstitutional population of the United States. Detailed figures may not add to totals due to rounding. The survey design, general qualifications, and information on the reliability of the estimates are given in app. I of source. Definitions of terms are given in app. II.
