Abstract : This Supplement to IDA Study S-300, County Resource Data for Civil Defense Applications, presents a useful refinement of the data reported therein indicating the relationships of population to selected resources. Study S-300 showed the concentration of population and various resources separately. This supplement relates each of the resources directly to the population concentration. A set of graphs are presented relating the percentages of national totals of selected resources to cumulative percentages of population (arranged in descending rank by county). These graphs, together with their supporting tables, indicate the extent to which the reported resources would be involved in an attack directed primarily at population. (Author)
