American Indian Children in Los Angeles, California and the U.S.

This policy brief is the second in a series on American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) children in the Los Angeles metropolitan area. This brief compares this group with AIAN children in California and the United States, and with other children in these three geographic units. This brief examines census data on demographic characteristics (age, race/ethnicity, gender, household and family composition), income and poverty, housing conditions, and use of public assistance. The brief uses aggregate, group-specific data from the 2000 Census for Los Angeles, California and the United States. All data and statistics for AIANs excludes Latin American Indians. This policy brief contains an appendix on data. Los Angeles American Indian Children’s Council
