68,000 UNEMPLOYED WILL BE INVESTIGATED BY HARVARD

Harvard's School of Public Health has undertaken the investigation of the health of the unemployed and the extent to which their unemployment has deteriorated their health.

The analysis of the data on the health and employment of 68,000 sick individuals in Boston obtained by the Unemployment Census for six months of 1933-34 is the first task in the general investigation.

This data reports 70,000 cases of illness and gives information as to the age, sex, race and birthplace of the sick individual, the number of people in his family, his employment status, his family's employment status, the number of illnesses reported, the nature of each illness, its duration, termination, the form of medical care, and the district inhabited.
