Table 192.- Households studied, by general nativity and race of head of household.
It will be seen from the table preceding that 86.8 per cent of the households studied have heads of foreign birth, and only 13.2 per cent heads of native birth of native father. The small proportion of native households studied was due to the plan to secure only a sufficient number of such households for comparison with the foreignborn. The large proportion of households whose heads were Croatian is due to the numerical importance of the Croatians in the packing industry in Kansas City. The households of other races were also secured according to their local importance in the industry and for the purpose of comparing locally the racial tendencies, as well as for a comparison with the same races in other packing localities.
MEMBERS OF HOUSEHOLDS FOR WHOM DETAILED INFORMATION WAS
The table next presented shows the persons in the households studied and persons for whom detailed information was secured, by general nativity and race of head of household:
Table 193.-Persons in households studied and persons for whom detailed information
was secured, by general nativity and race of head of household.
The preceding table shows that of the 2,136 persons in the 341 households studied in this locality, a fraction over 90 per cent are in households the heads of which are foreign-born, while the remainder are in households in which the heads are native-born of native father. It will also be noted that a larger proportion of the total number of persons are in Croatian households than in all the other households combined; those in Irish households constituting the smallest proportion, or 2.4 per cent of the total number of persons in all households studied.
As regards those persons for whom detailed information was secured, it will be seen that the proportion in foreign households is but slightly lower than the proportion of the total number of persons in all households.
The following table shows, by general nativity and race of head of household, the sex of persons in the households studied for whom detailed information was secured.
Table 194.-Sex of persons for whom detailed information was secured, by general
nativity and race of head of household.
The totals of the preceding table indicate about the same relative number of males and females of the households whose heads were native-born or foreign-born, the only features worthy of comment being the proportionately higher number of females than males in the Irish households and, on the other hand, the excess of males over females in the Polish households.
In the table next submitted the persons in the households studied for whom detailed information was secured is shown according to sex and general nativity and race of individual:
TABLE 195.- Persons for whom detailed information was secured, by sex and general
nativity and race of individual.
Upon referring to the above table, it is seen that of the total number of persons for whom data were received, 11.6 per cent were nativeborn of native father 36.6 per cent native-born of foreign father, and 51.8 per cent foreign-born. Both among the foreign-born and the native-born of foreign father the Croatians are shown in largest proportions. Among the second generation information was secured from a slightly larger proportion of Germans than of Poles, and among the foreign-born a slightly higher percentage of Poles than of Germans.
The Irish, both of the first and second generations, were studied only in sufficient numbers for purposes of comparison. About the same relative proportion of males and females is shown for all races, with the exception of the Croatians, who show a comparatively high proportion of females of the second generation and of males of foreign birth.
