Migration and mobility among Danish settlers in southwest Iowa

Auteur :
MACKINTOSH, J.

Description :
The immigration of Danes to Clay and Sharon townships in Iowa, and their subsequent mobility is studied on the basis of censuses from 1870 to 1925. The distribution of immigrants by age and sex reveals that family immigration was common in this area before 1900. The persistence of adult males is studied as a function of age, ethnic background, income, property ownership, and occupation.
