Abstract

A sample of rural residents in a 10-county area of Tennessee which did not have a history of plantation-type agriculture showed that homes occupied by black families were as large, had about the same number of persons per dwelling, were built about the same time, were constructed of similar materials, and had about as good a supply of water as homes occupied by white families. However, where measures of complete plumbing were used, homes occupied by blacks showed significantly lower quality. Black families made repairs and improvements to their homes just as frequently as did the white families and the black families had plans to make just as many improvements and repairs as white families.
