TERRITORY COVERED BY THE INVESTIGATION.
The term "Middle West," for the purposes of this section of the study of immigrants in the iron and steel industry, is used to designate the territory north of the Ohio and east of the Mississippi rivers and south of the Great Lakes, including the States of Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, and all of Ohio except the eastern part embraced in the study of the Pittsburg district.
METHOD OF PRESENTING DATA.
Households of immigrant iron and steel workers were studied and are presented along with other detailed material in connection with Community D, a representative iron and steel manufacturing community of the Middle West of recent growth, and in which immigrants from southern and eastern Europe have found employment in large numbers. Detailed information was also secured for more than 12,000 employees of blast furnaces and iron and steel establishments located in all parts of the Middle West, and the present section of the report sets forth in a summary way the salient facts as regards these iron and steel workers. The number for whom information was received is large enough to be considered representative, and the facts and tendencies exhibited by the succeeding tabulations are thought to be typical of conditions in the Middle West.
EMPLOYEES FOR WHOM INFORMATION WAS SECURED.
The extent of the information received and the source of the statistical material for the general survey in the Middle West is shown in the following table and chart, which set forth the number and per cent of male employees of each race for whom information was secured: TABLE 555.-Male employees for whom information was secured, by general nativity and race.
