Halaman 17 - owner-occupied" if the owner or co-owner is one of the persons living in the unit (or absent from the household for a short period of time, such as a family member in the Armed Forces or temporarily working away from home) even if he has not fully paid for the unit or has a mortgage on it. A cooperative apartment unit is owner-occupied if the owner lives in it.
Halaman 17 - color" refers to the division of population into two groups, white and nonwhite. The group designated as "nonwhite" consists of Negroes, Indians, Japanese, Chinese, and other nonwhite races. Persons of Mexican birth or ancestry who were not definitely Indian or of other nonwhite race were classified as white in 1950 and 1940. In the 1930 publications, Mexicans were included in the group "Other races," but the 1930 data published in this report have been revised to include Mexicans in the white population.
