"The Negroes of Xenia, Ohio: A Social Study (1830-1900)." Bulletin of the Bureau of Labor
			
1034               BULLETIN OF THE BUREAU OF LABOR.

  The total annual rent for 178 families is $7,765, or $43.62 per family,
per year, which is $3.64 per family per month.    The renters  occupy
602 rooms, which rent for an average of $12.90 per room per year, or
$1.08 per room per month.   The largest rented dwelling is of 8 rooms,
and the highest rent paid is $10 per month.    The average size of the
dwellings that are rented is 3.4 rooms, as against 4.7 rooms, the aver-
age size of the dwellings owned.
  As to length of residence in  present dwelling place, the  following
table shows that 76, or 15.9 per cent, of the 478 families reporting, had
lived in their present places of abode  less  than 1 year; 44, or  9.2  per
cent,  1 year and less than 2 years; 222, or 46.44 per cent, less than 5
years, while 256, or 53.56 per cent, had lived in their homes more than
5 years.    Of these 65, or 13.6; per cent of the whole, had lived in their
homes  20 years or over.    Of  course we should  expect the lattter  to
be those who owned their homes.   Of the home owners, 14 families,
or  4.65 per cent, had lived less than 12  months in the  houses  they
occupied.   In  fact 1 was moving into a house that had just been
built, when the  investigator  called.    Thirty, or 9.97  per cent, had
occupied their homes less than 2 years; 76, or 25.25 per cent, less than
5 years; and 225, or 74.75 per cent, more than 5 years.  Of  the home
owners 62, or $20.6 per cent, had occupied their homes more than 20
years.
