Black Ethnics

Chapter 2 provides US census data in conjunction with Local 371 demographic data to better explain the significance of a union population for this particular project. This chapter also explains survey design and implementation and the sample population. I provide a beginning analysis about the ethnically diverse black population that not only serves as a political example of the range of participatory behaviors, expectations from the polity, and policy attitudes. In this chapter, I explain the use of quantitative survey methods and also the interviews conducted with the leadership and rank-and-file membership of Social Services Employees Union (SSEU) Local 371.
