The above table shows that of the male employees 20 years of age or over for whom information was secured, 62.8 per cent are married and only 1.8 per cent widowed. The proportion married is much larger for the foreign-born than for the whites, native-born of native father and slightly larger for the latter than for the native-born of foreign father, while the proportion of widowed is smallest for the foreign-born and slightly smaller for the native-born of foreign father than for the native-born of native father. Among the foreign-born males, the Germans have the largest, followed by the Magyars, Bohemians and Moravians, and Hebrews other than Russian, in the order mentioned, and the Lithuanians and Slovaks the smallest proportions married.

Of the females 20 years of age or over for whom information was secured, 63.6 per cent are single and 8.7 per cent are widowed. The proportion single is considerably larger for the native-born of foreign father than for the whites native-born of native father and larger for the latter than for the foreign-born, while the proportion of widowed individuals is largest for the whites native-born of native father, second largest for the foreign-born, and smallest for the native-born of foreign father. Among the foreign-born females, the Russian Hebrews have the largest proportions, followed by the Russians, Hebrews other than Russian, and Lithuanians, in the order mentioned, and the North Italians and South Italians the smallest proportions single.

The above table shows that of all employees 20 years of age or over, both male and female, 50.8 per cent are married and only 4.2 per cent are widowed. The proportion of married employees is considerably larger for the foreign-born than for the whites native-born of native father, and larger for the latter than for the native-born of foreign father, while the proportion of widowed is much larger for the whites native-born of native father than for either the native-born of foreign father or the foreign-born. Among the foreign-born, the Magyars have the largest proportion, followed by the Germans, North Italians, Hebrews other than Russian, and Russian Hebrews, in the order mentioned, and the Lithuanians and Poles the smallest proportions married.

The following table divides the totals of the one preceding and shows the per cent of employees in each conjugal condition, by age groups and sex, and by general nativity and race: TABLE 72.Per cent of employees in each conjugal condition, by sex and age groups, and

by general nativity and race.

Of the persons 20 to 29 years of age, it will be noted that the proportions of single males, as a rule, are much lower than those of the females, which is true also of those 30 to 44 years of age. Of those 45 years of age or over, however, the males have by far the greatest proportion. "It will be noted that the proportion of single persons in each race decreases in each succeeding age group, the smallest proportions both of males and females being in the 45 years or over group,

In the table next presented the per cent of persons in each conjugal condition in the households studied is set forth by sex and age groups, and by general nativity and race of individual:

Of 2,161 individuals 20 years of age or over, 83.4 per cent are married, 13.3 per cent single, and 3.3 per cent widowed. The nativeborn of foreign father, as compared with the foreign-born, show a larger proportion single, consequently a smaller proportion married, as the proportion who are widowed is only 3.6 per cent for the foreignborn and none for the native-born of foreign father. A comparison between the total number of males and females who were 20 years of age or over shows that a slightly larger proportion of the females are married and a smaller proportion single. Each foreign-born race shows a larger proportion of married and a smaller proportion of single women than men. The proportion of Bohemian and Moravian widows is noticeably large.

A comparison by age groups shows that the proportion who are single decreases and the proportion who are married or widowed increases between the 20 to 29 and 30 to 44 year age groups, while in the 45 years of age or over group, the proportion who

are single or married decreases and the proportion who are widowed increases. This comparison applies to the males as well as the females.

The distribution of married employees in the different localities is exhibited by the following table, which shows, by locality, sex, and general nativity and race the proportion of employees 20 years of age or over who were married.
