Appendix C Committee Activities The committee's work required frequent meetings. The main subtopics were given additional attention by five panels dealing, respectively, with education; employment, income, and occupations; health; political partici- pation and administration of criminal justice; and social and cultural conti- nuity and change. In addition to meetings of committee and panel members as a whole, each panel held separate meetings as needed. Some of these meetings included presentations and discussions with invited participants; we appreciate their contributions to the committee's work. The work of the committee and panels was also helped enormously by a set of commissioned papers. These papers are cited in the text of the report, but we also note here with thanks their contributions.
