Farm Families Growing Smaller.
The average size of farm families
in Pennsylvania, according to the
triennial farm census, is 4.27. This is
an interesting contrast to the faim
families numbering 6 to 10 persons a
few generations ago. The average
family has 2.22 males and 2.05 fe-
males. These figures give at least one
reason why farm labor is an increas-
ing problem in agriculture, and also
point to the need for greater use of
home conveniences in reducing the
tasks of the household.
In Centre county the average of
males on the farm is 2.53 and of fe-
