In view of the many inadequacies pertaining to the health problems that exist among many of the students and their families in Dallas, Texas, the problem involved in this study is one of determining the health status of one hundred selected families of students in attendance at the James Madison High School, Dallas, Texas.
The purposes of this study are expressed under several broad headings. They are: 1. To ascertain the incidents of families experiencing sub-normal levels of health as revealed in housing, food, water supply, and medical attention. 2. To reveal such factors as health habits, living conditions, and use of city health services. 3. To set forth suggestions for improvement.
This study is concerned with the nature and incidence of illness and the environmental and living conditions of one hundred students and their families who are in attendance at the James Madison High School, Dallas, Texas. It is to be noted that the number of families under study represent only a portion of the families of the students enrolled in James Madison High School. The students were chosen from an alphabetical list composed of the total number taught by the investigator. Every tenth name that appeared on the roll was selected to be studied. This process did not result in a random sampling, but did insure a fair means of making the selections.
