Of 705 families selected for study, 96.3 per cent have an income from earnings of husband, 4.5 per cent have an income from earnings of wife, 20.9 per cent from contributions of children, 35.3 per cent from payments of boarders and lodgers and 21.1 per cent from other sources.

The families the heads of which are native-born of foreign father show 100 per cent, those the heads of which are native-born whites of native father, 97.1 per cent, and those the heads of which are of foreign birth 96 per cent having an income from the earnings of husband. The families the heads of which are foreign-born show the highest percentage having an income from earnings of wife, contributions of children and payments of boarders or lodgers. The families the heads of which are native-born whites of native father show the next highest percentage having an income from wife, and the families the heads of which are native-born of foreign father the next highest percentage having an income from contributions of children, and from payments of boarders and lodgers. The families the heads of which are native-born of foreign father show the highest percentage having an income from other sources, closely followed by the families the heads of which are native-born whites of native father and those whose heads are of foreign birth.

Of the families whose heads are of foreign birth, those whose heads are Ruthenians, Lithuanians, and Poles show the highest percentage having an income from earnings of husband and the families the heads of which are Ruthenians and Poles the highest percentage having an income from earnings of wife. The families the heads which are Germans show the highest percentage having contributions from children, and those whose heads are Poles the highest percentage having an income from payments of boarders and lodgers. The families whose heads are Germans show the highest percentage having an income from other sources.

In the following table, in which the sources of family income are again shown in detail, each source specified is exclusive of every other source. In other words, the proportion of families appearing under each designated source have their entire income from that

source.

Of 705 families studied in the above table, the highest percentage have their entire income from the husband, the next highest percentage have their entire income from husband and boarders or lodgers and 24.5 per cent have their entire income from sources or combination of sources not before specified. Over 9 per cent have the entire income from husband and children and 3 per cent have the entire income from husband and wife; but only small proportions have the entire income from the other sources specified in the table.

The families the heads of which are native-born of foreign father show 64.5 per cent, those whose heads are native-born whites of native father show 58.6 per cent, while those whose heads are of foreign birth show only 30 per cent having the entire income from the husband. The families the heads of which are foreign-born show proportions having the entire income from each source specified in the table, except that of husband, wife, and children, but the largest percentage have their entire income from the husband, husband and boarders and lodgers and sources or combination of sources not before specified. The families the heads of which are native-born of foreign father receive their entire income from husband, husband and children, and sources or combination of sources not before specified. The greatest proportion of the families whose heads are native-born whites of native father receive their entire income from husband, sources or combination of sources not before specified, and from husband and children. Of the families whose heads are foreign-born, those whose heads are Swedes and Slovaks show the highest percentage having entire income from husband. Those whose heads are Poles show the highest percentage having their entire income from husband and wife. Those whose heads are Germans show the highest percentage having their entire income from husband and children, and the families whose heads are Ruthenians show the highest percentage having their entire income from husbands and boarders or lodgers. The families whose heads are Germans show the highest percentage having entire income from sources or combination of sources not before specified.

RELATIVE IMPORTANCE OF THE DIFFERENT SOURCES OF FAMILY INCOME.

The relative importance of the different sources of income of the families studied in the community may be seen from the following table, which shows, by general nativity and race of head of family, the percentage of total

yearly income from the husband, wife, children, boarders or lodgers, and other sources.

TABLE 183.-Per cent of total family income within the year from husband, wife, chil

dren, boarders or lodgers, and other sources, by general nativity and race of head of family.

(STUDY OF HOUSEHOLDS.)

[This table includes only race with 20 or more families reporting. The totals, however, are for all races.)

[blocks in formation]

The foregoing table shows that of 705 selected families 72.4 per cent of the total income is derived from earnings of husband, 1.4 per cent is derived from the earnings of wife, 12.8 per cent from contributions of children, 6.9 per cent from payments of boarders or lodgers, and 6.5 per cent from other sources.

The largest proportion of the income in families whose heads are of each nativity group is derived from the husband; families the heads of which are native-born of foreign father showing the highest percentage, and the families whose heads are native whites born of native father, and those whose heads are of foreign birth following in the order named with smaller percentages. In the families the heads of · which are foreign-born a higher percentage of total income is derived from earnings of wife, contributions of children, and payments of boarders or lodgers than in families the heads of which are native whites born of native father and native-born of foreign father which follow in the order named. The families the heads of which are native whites born of native father show a higher percentage of the total income from other sources than do the families of foreign birth and those whose heads are native-born of foreign father.

The families the heads of which are Slovaks show the highest percentage of the total income from earnings of husband; the families the heads of which are Ruthenians show a higher percentage receiving total income from earnings of wife than do the families whose heads are of other specified races.

The families the heads of which are Swedes show the highest percentage and those whose heads are Ruthenians the lowest percentage of total earnings from contributions of children. Families the heads of which are Ruthenians show the highest percentage and those whose heads are Swedes the lowest percentage of total income from payments of boarders or lodgers. The families the heads of which are Germans show the highest percentage and those whose heads are Slovaks the lowest percentage of the total income from other sources.
