EMPLOYEES FOR WHOM INFORMATION WAS SECURED.
As has already been pointed out, the data secured for employees has been used as a basis for the statistical survey of the industry in the East. The data secured from the households investigated appear in the studies of representative communities designated as A and B. The following table shows by sex the number and percentage of employees of each race for whom information was secured in the East: TABLE 92.-Employees for whom information was secured, by sex and general nativity and race.

TABLE 92.—Employees for whom information was secured, by sex and general nativity and race- -Continued.
In addition to the statistical survey of the industry in the East, two community studies are added to this geographical division of the report. These communities are primarily engaged in the manufacture of boots and shoes, and immigrants of both recent and past years have been extensively employed in their factories. These community studies, as in the case of other industries, are presented for the following reasons: First, to secure a verification of the tendencies exhibited by the more extended tabulations; second, to present material not included in the statistical tables but bearing directly upon American life and institutions, and third, to attempt to reach more definite conclusions as to the economic effects of immigration.
