Of 776 persons reporting who were 20 years of age or over 63.1 per cent are married and 7.5 per cent are widowed. In the group including persons from 20 to 29 years of age 45.5 per cent are married and 1.7 per cent are widowed. Of persons from 30 to 44 years of age, 74.4 per cent are married and 7.3 per cent are widowed, while of those 45 years of age or over 74.5 per cent are married and 17.4 per cent are widowed. Persons of foreign birth show a somewhat higher percentage married in each age group than is shown in the table for all persons reporting. The proportion of foreign-born persons widowed, however, is smaller in all age groups except that including persons from 20 to 29 years of age than that shown in the totals for all persons reporting. In the group mentioned the percentage of foreignborn persons widowed is the same as that shown in the totals. In every age group persons of foreign birth report a higher percentage married than persons who are native whites born of native father or persons who are native-born of foreign father. Males report a considerably higher percentage of married persons in each of the age groups than females, while the latter show a much greater proportion widowed in each group than males.
