COST OF LIVING IN THE UNITED STATES.
INTRODUCTION AND SCOPE OF THE REPORT.
In 1918-19 the United States Department of Labor, through the
Bureau of Labor Statistics, working in cooperation with the National
War Labor Board, made an investigation into the cost of living in
industrial centers in the United States. This investigation covered
white families in 92 cities or localities in 42 States, the cities varying
in size from New York to small country towns of a few thousand
population. In selecting these places it was the aim of the bureau
to get representative data that would show living conditions in
all sections of the country and in all kinds of localities. The
results of this investigation are published in this report.1 Tables
showing changes in cost of living up to December, 1923, are included.
The data for this study were secured, as in the former studies, through
personal visits by agents of the bureau to the homes of wage earners
and small-salaried men, where, by means of interviews with the wife
or other members of the family, information was obtained relative
to the income and expenditures of the family for a period of one year.
The period covered ranged from the year ending July 31, 1918, to the
year ending February 28, 1919. Seventy-five per cent of the work
covered practically the year 1918.
1 In addition to the information on cost of living given in the present report, the Sixth and Seventh
Annual Reports of the Commissioner of Labor, published in the years 1890 and 1891, respectively, in con­
nection with statistics of cost of production of iron, steel, bituminous coal, coke, iron ore, limestone, cotton
goods, woolen goods, and glass, furnished extensive tabulations of data relative to the cost of living of em­
ployees engaged in those industries. In the Sixth Annual Report the information relating to cost of living
was collected from 3,260 families (representing 16,581 persons), the heads of which were employed in the
iron, steel, and cognate industries. In the Seventh Annual Report information was gathered from 5,284
families (representing 27,577 persons), the heads of which were employed in the cotton, woolen, and glass
industries. It is thus seen that the whole number of families investigated for the two reports was 8,544,
while the number of persons represented was 44,158.
In 1901-2 the then Department of Labor made another study of the cost of living, covering 25,440 work­
ingmen’s families (124,188 persons) located in the principal industrial centers of the United States. This
study was distributed over 33 States an£ the proportion of families in each geographical division corre­
sponded very closely to its importance in an industrial sense. The families investigated were selected
without reference to industry, but it is believed that the data given relative to the cost of living were fairly
representative of the conditions that existed among wage earners in the whole country. This report was
published as the Eighteenth Annual Report of the Commissioner of Labor.
In addition to these studies the Bureau has made several less comprehensive local studies of cost of
living, the results of which have been published in the M onthly L abor R eview .

COST OF LIVING IK TH E UNITED STATES.

AVERAGE FAM ILY EXPENDITURES FOR EACH CITY, BY INCOM E
GROUPS*

Table 3 shows for each city by income groups the amount and per
cent of expenditure for each of the six groups of items under which
expenditures are shown. This table also shows, for each income
group, the number of families having a surplus or deficit, and the
average amount of each. The average surplus or deficit for all
families in each group is also shown.
There is a noticeable agreement among the several cities in the
er cent of expenditure for the respective groups of items. As
etween income groups, the actual amount spent for food increased
with the income, while as a rule the per cent of expenditure devoted
to food decreased with the increase of income. The per cent expended
for clothing clearly increased with the income, while miscellaneous
expenditures, which include insurance, church, lodges, labor
organizations, charities, street-car fares, movies, doctor and
hospital bills, and all other expenses not provided for in any of
the specific groups named, increased with the income but not with
the same degree of regularity. The per cent of expenditure for rent
and for fuel and light, decreased slightly with the increase of income,
and up to a certain point there was an increase in the per cent of ex­
penditure for furniture and house furnishings.
While no limit was set as to the size of families to be studied, there
is a remarkable agreement in the average size of all families scheduled
in the several localities. With less than a dozen exceptions, this
average size ranged from 4.5 to 5.3 persons, and in by far the larger
number of cases the range was from 4.3 to 5.1 persons.
There is a greater difference between the averages for the income
groups, the range for the United States being from 4.3 to 6.4 persons
per family as shown in Table 2. As a rule the higher income groups
have larger families. This is probably due to the fact that the fami­
lies having larger incomes are older families, while the families
having lower incomes are of younger people whose families have not
yet attained their ultimate size.

ANALYSIS OF GENERAL TABLES.

In this study particular attention was paid to the family income.
Not only is the amount of income which a family receives important,
but the sources of that income call for serious consideration.
Two families may have equal total incomes. In one case the
income may be derived wholly from the wages or salary of the
husband. The wife’s time may be devoted to her domestic and
social duties— care of the home and children, and such neighborhood
or other work as she may be interested in. The children are in school.
In the case of the second family, the husband’s earnings may be in­
sufficient to support the family and it becomes necessary for the
wife to devote more or less of her time to working for pay, or for the
children to stop school and go to work to supplement the income
of the husband and father.
A well-tended vegetable garden, or a poultry yard, may not only
add to a family’s income, but be a source of profit in the pleasure
derived from caring for it. On the other hand, the presence of
lodgers in a family may, by crowding and otherwise, have a delete­
rious effect.
It has been found that in one of the 92 localities included in the
survey the average earnings of the husbands constituted more than
95 per cent of the total average income; in 49 localities they consti­
tuted 90 and under 95 per cent of the total income; in 29 localities,
85 and under 90 per cent; in 10 localities, 80 and under 85 per cent;
and in 3 localities, 75 and under 80 per cent. In 76 localities the
average total earnings per family were 95 per cent or more of the
family’s total income; and in 16 localities, 90 and under 95 per cent.
In considering the sources of income and the importance of each
source with relation to the total family income, it should be kept
in mind that families of the following types were excluded: (1)
Those in which there were children who lived as boarders, that is,
paid a certain sum per week or per month for board and spent the
remainder of their earnings or salary as they saw fit; (2) those which
kept any boarders or more than three lodgers; and (3) those in which
the total earnings of the family did not equal 75 per cent or more
of the total income. The object in so doing was to secure families
dependent for support, as largely as possible, upon the earnings of
the husband. It will be seen that a large number of families was
therefore excluded, thus materially affecting the percentage of
families having earnings from children and income from lodgers
and showing a larger percentage of the total income as coming from
the earnings of the husband than would otherwise be the case.
Another effect of the above exclusions was to reduce the actual amount
per family earned by children and received from boarders or lodgers
that would be shown in a cross section of a community including all
the types mentioned.

This table shows by income groups for each of the 92 localities in­
cluded in the study, the average mcome from the earnings o f the
husband, the number of families having income from the earnings of
wife, children, and dependents, from lodgers, garden, poultry, etc.,
gifts, rents and investments, and from other sources. The table
shows also the average income per family from each of these sources
based on the number of families having such income, as well as the
average based on all families studied.

p e r fa m ity

This table shows the average quantity of each of 128 articles-of food
consumed by 11,900 families. Because certain items of food con­
sumption were not reported, 196 familes have been omitted from
this table. The average size of the 11,900 families was 4.9 persons.
The figures in the first column of Table B are based on the average
consumption per family. Of corn's© not all members of a family con­
sume the sajne quantity of food. Careful studies and comparisons
of food consumption have led to the assumption that, as a rule, using
the food consumed by an adult male (one 15 years of age or over) as a
basis or 1.00 the relative consumption of food is as follows:
Adult
Adult
Child
Child
Child
Child

male-------------------------------------------------------------------------------1. 00
female---------------------------------------------------------------------- 1— . 90
11 to 14 years_____________ : _________ - ___________ 1— * . 90
7 to 10 years--------------------------------------------------- ------------- . 75
4 to 6 years---------------------------------------------- ---------- ---------.40
3 years or under-----------------------------------------------------------. 15

On this basis, the families included in Table A contained an average
of 3.32 “ equivalent adult males” ; that is, they would consume as
much food as 3.32 males 15 years of age or over.
The second column of Table B shows the average quantity of food
consumed per equivalent adult male. The third and fourth columns
show, respectively, the number and per cent of families using each
specified article of food, while the last column shows the average quan­
tity consumed by the families using such article. Thus we have two
figures of consumption per family, the first an average based upon all
families included m the study and the other an average based upon the
number of families using the particular article shown. In this table,
except where otherwise stated the quantities are expressed in pounds.
The figures in the last line in the table show the average number of
lunches purchased per family during the year.
The data in this table are shown for five geographical divisions and
for the United States as a whole.

Because there is such a wide difference in the clothing of males and
females and of adults and children, it seemed best to present the data
on clothing by age and sex groups. It was also desirable to show them

COST OF LIVING IN THE UNITED STATES.

' The summary of the table shows that of the 8,561 families reported
in Table D, 5,191 families live in houses and 3,370 live in flats or
apartments. In a number of the smaller towns no families were
found living in apartments.

Like housing, the question of fuel and light is to a considerable
extent a local one. In. one city anthracite coal is the principal
article of fuel, in another city bituminous coal, in another gas, and
so on. For this reason the aata for this group of expenditures are
shown by cities. Table E shows, for each income group in each
city, the number of families, the average number of rooms per
family, and the average quantity and expenditure per family for
each article of fuel and light. Families wnose expenditure for fuel
and light were included with rent have been omitted. Figures are
shown for 11,793 families, of which 8,195 lived in houses and 3,598
lived in flats or apartments.

Like Tables B and C, this table shows data for “ all families” and
for “ families purchasing.” It shows for the United States, by
income groups, the average number of specified articles purchased
and the average expenditure per article and per family.
At the beginning of the table is a statement showing tne number of
families and the average number of persons per family in each
income group.

This table shows the average expenditure per family in one year
for a number of miscellaneous items. In the nature of the case in
very few of these items could the number or quantity be shown,
and no attempt has been made to show this for any item.
At the beginning of the table, as in some of the other tables, is a
statement showing the number of families and the average number

When the bureau made its study in 1918-19 it also secured prices
in certain cities on a large number of articles for December each year
from 1914 to 1917, inclusive. In other cities it obtained prices for
1917 only. In 32 of these cities it has continued to get prices from one
to four times each year since 1917. With the prices for Decem­
ber, 1914, and December, 1917, respectively, as a base, percentages
of increase or decrease have been computed and the results published
in the Monthly Labor Review. Summaries for the United States have
also been made from the figures for the 32 cities. These results are
shown in General Tables H, I, and K.




ANALYSIS OF GENEEAL TABLES.

T able H .— Changes in cost o f living in 19 cities from D ecem ber, 1914, to D e­
cem ber, 1923.
Table l . — Changes in cost o f living in 13 cities from D ecem ber, 1917, to D ecem ­
ber, 1923.
Table K .— Changes in cost o f living in the United States from 1913 to D ecem ­
ber, 1923.

The prices of food and of fuel and light (which include coal, wood,
gas, electricity, and kerosene) are furnished the bureau in accordance
with arrangements made with establishments through personal visits
of the bureau’s agents. In each city food prices are secured from
15 to 25 merchants and dealers, and fuel ana light prices from 10 to
15 firms, including public utilities. All other data are secured by
special agents of the bureau who visit the various merchants,
dealers, and agents and secure the figures directly from their records.
Four quotations are secured in each city (except m Greater New York,
where five are obtained) on each of a large number of articles of
clothing, furniture, and miscellaneous items. Rental figures are
secured for from 375 to 2,000 houses and apartments in each city,
according to its population.
In studying these tables it should be borne in mind that the figures
for the 19 cities in Table H are based on the prices prevailing in De­
cember, 1914, the figures for the 13 cities in Table I are based on the
prices prevailing in December, 1917, while the figures for the United
States shown in Table K are a summarization of the figures in Tables
H and I, computed on a 1913 base.
It will be noted that from the beginning of the studies to June,
1920, there was, with an occasional exception, a steady increase in
prices, becoming much more decided during the latter part of that
period. From June, 1920, to March, 1922, there was a decrease
during each period covered by the tables. During the latter part
of this time the decreases were very small. From March to June,
1922, and from June to September of the same year the changes were
small, being increases in some cities and decreases in others. From
September to December, 1922, an increase was shown in each of the
32 cities.
From December, 1922, to March. 1923, the changes ranged from
a decrease of 2.9 per cent to an increase of 0.8 per cent, the average
for the United States being a decrease of 0.4 per cent.
During the period from March to June, 1923, the changes ranged
from a decrease of 0.9 per cent to an increase of 2.8 per cent, the aver­
age for the United States being an increase of 0.5 per cent. This
brought the cost of living to within three-tenths of 1 per cent of what
it was in December, 1922.
During the three months from March to June, 1923, the price of food
increased in 28 of the 32 cities, clothing increased in 22 of the cities,
and furniture increased in all of the cities. Housing increased in 17
and decreased in 12 cities, miscellaneous items increased in 11 and
decreased in 15 cities, while fuel and light increased in 2 cities and
decreased in 28 cities. In a few cities one or more of the groups
of items remained the same in June as in March.




74

COST OF UVING IN THE UNITED STATES.

From June to September, 1923, there was an increase in every
city, the range being from 0.2 per cent to 2.7 per cent. The average
increase for the United States was 1.4 per cent. Food and clothing
increased in every city, rents increased in 25 cities. The other
groups of items increased in the majority of cities, but decreased
m a few.
From September to December, 1923, the changes range from 1.3
per cent decrease to 1.4 per cent increase, the average for the United
States being an increase of 0.6 per cent. There was an increase in
all but five of the cities. In 23 cities there was an increase in the
cost of food; in clothing there was an increase in 12 cities and a
decrease in 13; in housing there was an increase in 27 cities; in fuel
and light an increase in 24 cities; while in furniture and miscellaneous
items the increases and decreases were fairly divided among the cities.
