Presents several essays on social conditions in the U.S.. Deconcentration of the population in urban areas; Trend toward better jobs; Demographic changes in the country; Relationship of income to family structure. Every decade, the U.S. Bureau of the Census takes our nation's pulse. These detailed results complement other findings gathered through the year by private and government data collectors, providing a vivid picture of where our society is headed. With most census results now out, we thought this an opportune time to review America's long-term health. Following are nine essays in which experts describe some of the important things--both positive and negative--we've learned recently about how the U.S. is faring deep in its bones and muscles. In the essay "Family Decay Hurts Equality", the author explores the relationship of income to family structure, extracted from a classic government database called the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (NLSY), and apply those findings to the latest (2000) figures released by the U.S. Bureau of the Census.
