1032              BULLETIN OF THE BUREAU OF LABOR.

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.]

{Table}


  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:

       FAMILIES, BY SIZE OF FAMILY, AND NUMBER OF ROOMS TO A DWELLING.

{Table}

  The 1,832 Negroes  enumerated live in 2,100 rooms, an average of
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
