TABLB 4.—Per cent of persons within each age group, by sex and by general nativity and

race of head of householdContinued.

[blocks in formation]

The foregoing table furnishes data for 5,016 persons, 16.6 per cent of whom are under 6 years of age, 23.8 per cent from 6 to 13 years, 27.6 per cent from 14 to 29 years, and 31.9 per cent 30 years of age or over. Approximately one-third of the Portuguese, one-fourth of

. the Lithuanians, and one-fifth of the Slovaks are under 6 years of age, while the Bohemians and Moravians, Hebrews, Italians, and Poles exhibit the largest percentages who are 45 years of age or over. Of the foreign-born the Portuguese show the smallest percentage 20 years of age or over, followed by South Italians, Poles, and Slovaks; the Japanese report only 7.6 per cent under 20 years old, more than 50 per cent of this race being 20 to 29 years of age. Females show larger percentages than are shown by males in each age period under 16 years and smaller proportions in each of the following periods with the exception of 30 to 44 years of age.

The table following shows the per cent of foreign-born persons in the United States each specified number of years, by race of individual:

TABLE 5.—Per cent of foreign-born persons in the United States each specified number

of years, by race of individual. (By years in the United States is meant years since first arrival in the United States. No deduction is

made for time spent abroad. This table includes only races with 20 or more persons reporting. The total, however, is for all foreign-born.)

Data are presented in the preceding table for 2,190 persons, 18.4 per cent of whom have been in the United States under five years, 37.2 per cent under ten years, and 64.8 per cent under twenty years. With the exception of the Flemish, the Poles have had the longest period of residence in the United States, 68.2 per cent having been here more than twenty years and only 4 per cent less than five years. The Magyars, South Italians, Bohemians and Moravians, and Germans show fairly large percentages in this country twenty years or over and small proportions here under five years. The largest proportion in the United States ten years or over is shown by the Flemish, with 85.7 per cent, followed by the Poles, South Italians, and Germans in the order mentioned. The Japanese show the shortest period of residence, only 0.9 per cent having been here ten years or over, while 83.9 per cent have been here under five years.

The next table is interesting in this connection as showing the number and per cent of heads of families who have been in the locality each specified number of years, by general nativity and race of individual.

The preceding table presents data for 875 heads of families, 837 of whom are foreign-born and 38 native-born of foreign father. The table shows that 22.8 per cent of the foreign-born have been in their present locality under five years, 18.9 per cent five to nine years, 28.6 per

cent ten to nineteen years, and 29.7 per cent twenty years or over. Eighty-five and seven-tenths per cent of the Japanese have been in heir present locality under five years, compared with 48 per cent of he Slovaks, 47.8 per cent of the Hebrews, and much smaller percentages of the other races. The table indicates a comparatively long Deriod in agriculture for the Germans, Poles, and South Italians, more than two-thirds of the families of these races having resided in their present locality ten years or over. The largest proportion in the locality five to nine years is shown by the Portuguese, with 60 per cent.

The number and per cent of persons in each conjugal condition, by sex and age groups and by general nativity and race of individual, are shown in the table following. TABLE 7.Per cent of persons in each conjugal condition, by sex and age groups and

by general nativity and race of individual. [This table includes only races with 80 or more persons reporting. The totals, however, are for all races.]

Statistics are presented in the foregoing table for 2,235 persons 20 years of age or over, 20.3 per cent of whom are single, 76.5 per cent married, and 3.3 per cent widowed. The Japanese show a far higher per cent of single persons than any other immigrant race. The largest percentage married and the smallest percentage single are reported by the Poles, followed by the South Italians and Hebrews in the order mentioned. In the group 20 to 29 years of age, the Japanese have the maximum of 78.8 per cent single and the Poles the minimum of 31.1 per cent. The Hebrews, South Italians, and Poles have about the same proportion married in each of the two periods 30 to 44 and 45 years of age or over, the number exceeding 90 per cent in each instance. The native-born show in each age group a smaller percentage married and, with the exception of those 45 years of age or over, a larger percentage single than are shown by the foreign-born.

A comparison of males and females shows that 18.6 per cent of the foreign-born males are single and 78.2 per cent married, while 5.9 per cent of the foreign-born females are single and 90 per cent married. With the native-born, however, the males show a larger proportion single and a smaller proportion married than are shown by the females.

The table next submitted shows the present political condition of foreign-born males who have been in the United States 5 years or over and who were 21 years of age or over at the time of coming, by race of individual.

This table shows that of the 537 foreign-born males for whom data were obtained, 51.4 per cent are fully naturalized and 17.1 per cent have first papers, 31.5 per cent being aliens. Of those fully naturalized the Poles rank first, with 63.3 per cent, followed by the Bohemians and Moravians, with 58.3 per cent, and the Hebrews, with 53.8 per cent, the last named having the largest proportion, or 32.5 per cent, with first papers only. The Lithuanians, with 8.3 per cent, show the smallest percentage fully naturalized, followed by the Slovaks, with 23.8 per cent; these two races show the largest proportions of aliens.

The industrial condition before coming to the United States of foreign-born males and females who were 16 years of age or over at the time of coming is shown by the following tables: Table 9.-Industrial condition before coming to the United States of foreign-born inales

who were 16 years of age or over at time of coming, by race of individual. [This table includes only races with 20 or more males reporting. The total, however, is for all foreign-born.)
