Extra Census Bulletin. 



No. 96. WASHINGTON, D. C. October 15, 1894. 



STATISTICS OF FARMS, HOMES, AND MORTGAGES. 

OWNERSHIP AND DEBT IN FLORIDA. 



DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR, 
Census Office, 
Washington, D. C, September 29, 1894. 
Sir: 

The leading results of the investigation of farm and home proprietorship in Florida for 1890, conducted by 
Special Agents George K. Holmes and John S. Lord, are contained in this bulletin. In regard to farms, the 
conclusion is that 34.84 per cent of the farm families hire and 65.16 per cent own the farms cultivated by them ; 
that 2.95 per cent of the farm owning families own subject to incumbrance and 97.05 per cent own free of 
incumbrance. Among 100 farm families, 35 hire their farms, 2 own with incumbrance, and 63 without incumbrance. 
On the owned farms there are liens amounting to $860,380, which is 31.21 per cent of their value, and this debt 
bears interest at the average rate of 10.72 per cent, making the average annual interest charge $131 to each family. 
Each owned and incumbered farm, on the average, is worth $3,921, and is subject to a debt of $1,224. 

The corresponding facts for homes are that 62.54 per cent of the home families hire and 37.46 per cent own 
their homes ; that of the home owning families 95.38 per cent own free of incumbrance and 4.62 per cent with 
incumbrance. In 100 home families, on the average, 62 hire their homes, 2 own with incumbrance, and 36 without 
incumbrance. The debt on owned homes aggregates $765,073, or 38.43 per cent of their value, and bears interest 
at the average rate of 10.32 per cent, so that the annual amount of interest to each home averages $105. An average 
debt of $1,017 incumbers each home, which has the average value of $2,647. 

There are 3 cities in the state in the class of those having a population of 8,000 to 100,000, and in these cities 
68.52 per cent of the home families hire and 31.48 per cent own their homes, and of the home owning families 
10.47 per cent own with incumbrance and 89.53 per cent own free of incumbrance. In 100 home families, on the 
average, are found 69 that hire their homes, 3 that own with incumbrance, and 28 that own without incumbrance. 
The liens on the owned homes are 36.64 per cent of the value of those subject to lien. Several averages show that 
the rate of interest is 9.85 per cent; value of each owned and incumbered home, $2,956 ; lien on the same, $1,083, 
and yearly interest charge on each home, $107. 

Eeal estate purchase and improvements, when not associated with other objects, caused 67.57 per cent of the 
farm families to incur 73.60 per cent of the farm debt and 69.95 per cent of the home families to incur 67.87 per 
cent of the home debt. 

Very respectfully, 

CARROLL D. AVRIGHT, 

Commissioner of Labor in charge. 

The Secretary of the Interior.
