TABLE 158.- Visits abroad made by foreign-born employees, by sex, years in the United

States, and race.

(STUDY OF EMPLOYEES.) [By years in the United States is meant years since first arrival in the United States. This table includes

only races with 200 or more persons reporting. The total, however, is for all foreign-born.)

For the total number of persons, both male and female, visits are more prevalent from the five to nine year period of residence than from any other. Of the total number of persons, 6.5 per cent have made one or more visits abroad. Of those who have been here under five years the proportion is only 4.6 per cent, while for those whose residence has extended from five to nine years the proportion is 8.6 per cent. Among the males of less than five years residence, the South Italians show the largest proportion who have made visits abroad. The Poles show the next largest proportion, while the Germans report none. Almost 30 per cent of the North Italians and slightly more than 20 per cent of the South Italians whose residence here has been for from five to nine years report visits abroad. Again, in the period of ten or more years' residence, the South Italians show the largest proportion who have made visits abroad. In this period the Poles show the smallest proportion.

None of the German females of less than ten years' residence in this country have made visits abroad, while of those who have lived here for more than that time the proportion is 10 per cent. The North Italians show the largest proportion of females who have made visits abroad in the period of more than five years' residence, but among those who have resided here for less than that number of years the Poles show the largest proportion who have made visits abroad.

14 years

Of 8,529 persons, data for whom are included in the above table, 35.8 per cent are between the ages of 14 and 19 years. None are under

of age and less than 5 per cent are from 45 to 54 or 55 or over. The native-born of foreign father show the largest proportion of persons between the ages of 14 and 19 years, but in each other specified age group the foreign-born predominate.

A greater proportion of males are between the ages of 20 and 24 than in any other age group. None are under 14 years of age and less than 5 per cent are 55 years or over.

The native-born of foreign father show a larger proportion than do the foreign-born in each age group, below 25 years of age, but in each group above that age their proportion is smaller than that of the foreign-born. Among the foreign-born males between the ages of 14 and 19 years the North Italians show the largest proportion, and the Lithuanians the smallest proportion. The Poles show the largest proportion among those between the ages of 20 and 24, while the Lithuanians show the largest proportion among those between 25 and 29 years. No race shows a proportion as high as 21 per cent between the ages of 30 and 34 years. Less than 10 per cent of the males of every foreign-born race except the Bohemian and Moravian and German are between the ages of 45 and 54 years. For those two races the proportions are 10.5 and 20.9 per cent, respectively.

Of the females reported in the above table, 53.4 per cent are from 14 to 19 years of age. None are below 14 years of age and less than 10 per cent are in each of the specified age groups above 20 to 24 years. The native-born of foreign father show a larger proportion than do the foreign-born of females between the ages of 14 and 19, but in each other specified age group the foreign-born show the largest proportions. Among the foreign-born races, the smallest proportion of females between the ages of 14 and 19 is shown by the Germans, the proportion being 24.5 per cent. The highest proportion in this age group is shown by the Hebrews other than Russian, the percentage being 65.2. The Lithuanian females appear in largest proportion among those who are from 20 to 24 years of age. Less than 10 per cent each of the Russian and other Hebrews, Poles, and Russians are between the ages of 25 and 29. None of the Russian or Slovak females are from 35 to 44 years of age, but 13.9 per cent of the South Italians are in that age group. The German, Hebrew other than Russian, and Slovak are the only races showing more than 1 per cent of females who are 55 years of age or over.
