The purpose of the Handbook was to select, compute and arrange census tract data to make them available and useful to the local Dallas-area user.  General information includes analyses of past and possible future growth, changes in age, sex, and racial composition from 1940-1960, socioeconomic characteristics of Dallas, and tables and maps which permit comparisons between the various areas within Dallas County.
