STATUS OF CHILDREN IN THE HOUSEHOLDS STUDIED.

а

The two tables which are next submitted exhibit the general status of children in the households of employees in the slaughtering and meat-packing industry and also afford a basis for studying the relative status of children of native and foreign birth. The first table which

. immediately follows, shows by sex and by general nativity and race of individual, the per cent of children 6 and under 16 years of age in the households studied who were at home, at school, and at work.

From a study of 1,076 children in the preceding table, it is seen that 84.4 per cent are at school; 10.1 per cent at home, and 5.5 per cent at work. The native-born of native father show a larger proportion than the native-born of foreign father, who in turn show a larger proportion than the foreign-born, at school, while the positions are reversed as regards to those who are at home. Over 5 per cent of both the native-born of foreign father and the foreign-born are at work as compared with 1.2 per cent of the native-born of native father. The native-born whose fathers are of each specified race, show a decidedly larger proportion at school than both at home and at work. The same general comparison applies to both the male and females studied in this table.

The following table shows, by general nativity and race of father and by birthplace of child, the number and per cent of children 6 and under 16 years of age in the households studied who were at home, at school, and at work.

Table 112.-Number and per cent of children 6 and under 16 years of age at home, at school, and at work, by general nativity and race of father and by birthplace of child.

(STUDY OF HOUSEHOLDS ) (This table includes only races with 20 or more children born in the United States and also 20 or more

born abroad. The native-born of native father are shown for comparative purposes.)

Of all the children 6 and under 16 years of age for whom information was secured, 84.4 per cent are at school, 10.1 per cent are at home, and only 5.5 per cent are at work. The proportion of children at home is higher among the foreign-born than among either the native-born of foreign father or the native-born of native father, and the proportion at school is higher among both the native-born of foreign father and the native-born of native father than among the foreign-born, while the proportion at work, which is very low for the native-born whites of native father, is slightly higher for the native-born of foreign father than for the foreign-born.

In the case of each of the foreign races included in the table the proportion of children at home is larger for children born abroad than for children born in the United States, the difference in the percentages being largest among the Bohemians and Moravians and smallest among the Croatians. Of the Croatian children, a larger proportion of the foreign-born than of the native-born are reported at school, while for the children of each of the other races included in the table the reverse is true. The proportion of children at work is larger for the foreign-born than for the native-born among the German and Polish families, but larger for the native-born than for the foreign-born among the Croatian and Bohemian and Moravian families.

CITIZENSHIP.

The series of tables next presented sets forth the degree of citizenship and of interest in obtaining citizenship, among foreign-born male employees and male members of their households who have been in the United States for a sufficient period of time to satisfy, the requirements for complete naturalization. The first table and its chart which immediately follow show by race of individual, the present political condition of foreign-born male employees who had been in the United States five years or over, and who were 21 years of age or over at time of coming to this country.
