Department of Commerce's Bureau of the Census shows 1970 population totals for five racial groups for each county, by State. The groups are blacks, American Indians, Japanese, Chinese and Filipinos. One table ranks the counties with at least 10,000 blacks according to the size of their populations, and the report presents corresponding figures for the four other racial groups for counties where they number 1 ,000 or more. Tables in the report were compiled from several other 1970 census reports and assembled, for the first time, in a single publication convenient for data users. Other tables in the report show the distribution of the Korean, Hawaiian, Aleut, and Eskimo populations by regions, divisions, and States. Slightly more than half (53 percent) of the black population resided in the South in 1970, the report shows. However, counties with the largest concentrations of blacks were in the North and West. Cook County (Chicago), Jllinois, with almost 1 .2 million blacks ranked No. 1; Los Angeles County, California and Wayne County (Detroit), Michigan, each with more than 700,000 blacks, ranked second and third, respectively. The five counties which comprise New York City, usually considered a single geographical unit, had a combined total of 1.7 million blacks in 1970, thus making negotiating for wb-contracti when, it is in their best interest An estimator is available to bid on construction contracts In and around Soul City. .' 1 A financial specialist is also on hand, at WRPC.
