Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1883 edition. Excerpt: ...of the population according to the midsummer temperature, or the mean cf July as the hottest month, is: PERCENTAGES Op Foreign. Aggregate. Negro. 100.00 100.00 100.00 Here again the bulk of the population forms the mean between the negro and the foreign, and the latter has a wider distribution, especially as to the extremes of high and low temperatures. The distribution of the population according to winter temperature, or the mean temperature of January, taken as the coldest month, is as follows: PERCENTAGES OF Foreign. Aggregate. Negro. Below 10 1.S0 I. 0.01 10 to 30 63.94 50. 5.39 30 to 50 29.16 44. 82.58 Above 50 5.10 5. 12.02 100.00 100.00 100.00 Here again the negro has a more restricted distribution in the more temperate regions than the foreigner, whose percentages exceed those of the aggregate in the extremes of both heat and cold. The distribution of the population according to the greatest observed heat is as follows: PERCENTAGES OF Foreign. Aggregate. Negro. Below 90 3.59 0. 0.07 90 to 105 91.87 94. 96.53 Above 105. %... 4.54 6. 3.40 100.00 100.00 100.00 The extreme high temperatures here referred to are much more frequent at the North than at the South, and the result is shown by the numerous deaths from sunstroke at the North every summer. Such heat does occur at rare intervals at the South, and it is equally as fatal here, as witness the deaths in Charleston in June, 1876, when the hottest day in more than a century occurred. The distribution under the extremes of cold observed is: PERCENTAGE OF POPULATION. Foreigners. Aggregate. Colored. Below--45 0.09 0. 0--45 to 10 92.52 80. 33.88 10 to 20...., 4.53 19. 66.00 Above 20 2.86 1. 0.12 100.00 100.00 100.00 The remarks made regarding other climatic conditions apply here also;...show more
