PER CENT OF NEGRO FAMILIES OF XENIA, OF FARMVILLE, OF SANDY SPRING, AND OF
THE TOTAL FAMILIES OF THE UNITED STATES, BY SIZE OF FAMILY.
[The figures for Xenia, Farmville, and Sandy Spring are from schedules; those for the United States
are from the censuses of 1890 and 1900.]
The per cent of families of 1 member is about twice as great for
Xenia as for Farmville and for Sandy Spring. The per cent of fam-
ilies of front 2 to 6 members is also much greater in Xenia than in
Sandy Spring and Farmville, the per cent being 80.84 for Xenia, 72.9
for Farmville, and 63.64 for Sandy Spring. But for more than 6
members to a family the reverse is true. For Xenia only 41 fam-
ilies, or 8.18 per cent, had from 7 to 10 members, against 26.06 per
cent for Sandy Spring, and 19.47 per cent for Farmville. There
were but 4 families in Xenia, or eight-tenths of 1 per cent, having
more than 10 members. There was I family of 11 members, 1 of 12
members, 1 of 13 members, and 1 of 14 members, whereas in Farm-
ville 2.67 per cent of the families were larger than 10 members, and
in Sandy Spring, 4.85 per cent.
The following table shows the number of rooms occupied by these
families according to the size of each family:

1.15 rooms per person, or for the 501 families, an average of 4.19
rooms per family. The houses are generally frame structures of from
one to two stories high. There were only 11 brick houses. The
