This analysis has been organized into three main subdivisions. The first section is a brief statistical analysis of the total reservation population based on data gathered by the Bureau of Indian Affairs for a 1956 reservation census. The population analysis includes age and education, occupational data, and income information.
The differences among the communities included in this study are discussed in the second subdivision. Although all of the communities were regarded as non-ranching groups, one of the surprising findings was that there are some significant differences between one group and another.
