Presents estimates of the white and nonwhite population in each of the city's 26 health districts for the post-1960 years. The estimating model is documented so that it can be used to update these figures in the future. The model draws primarily on the vital statistics reported annually by the City Department of Health and Hospitals. The estimates were intended for use in a study of neighborhood change conducted as part of Rand's broader program of urban analysis in St. Louis. The model affords St. Louis, and possibly other cities, a ready means of maintaining up-to-date demographic information on small city areas: health districts or even census tracts.
