GENERAL PROGRESS AND ASSIMILATION.

OWNERSHIP OF HOMES.

The accumulation of property is not only an indication of thrift on the part of the owner, but, where the owner is a person of foreign birth, it also exhibits a tendency toward permanent settlement in the United States. In this connection, the following table is submitted, showing the number and percentage of families owning home, by general nativity and race of head of family.

TABLE 260.-Number and per cent of families owning home, by general nativity and race of head of family.

Of the total 733 households 7.1 per cent own their homes. The native-born of foreign father own their homes to a much greater extent than the foreign-born. There is, however, much variation in the extent to which ownership of homes prevails among the specified races. Of the Irish households, 20.6 per cent own their homes. None of the South Italians or Poles have acquired their own homes. A greater proportion of Irish of the second generation own their homes than of those born abroad.

STATUS OF CHILDREN IN THE HOUSEHOLDS STUDIED.

The table next presented is instructive as indicating the tendency on the part of children in the families studied to attend school or begin work when the working age is reached. The table shows, by general nativity and race of individual, the percentage of children 6 and under 16 years of age at home, at school, and at work.

(STUDY OF HOUSEHOLDS.)

[This table includes only races with 40 or more children reporting. The totals, however, are for all races.]

[blocks in formation]

The above table shows that 6.9 per cent of children who are 6 and under 16 years of age are at home, 82.5 per cent are at school, and 10.5 per cent are at work. Foreign-born show a slightly higher percentage than native-born of foreign father, while native-born of native father show few children at home. Native-born of native father show a considerably higher percentage of children at school than native-born of foreign father or foreign-born, which follow in the order named. The proportion of foreign-born at work is large
