Abstract

How much does it cost farm families to live? Does the farm family live more cheaply that the city family, inasmuch as a considerable proportion of the farm family’s food and fuel and all of the family’s shelter are furnished by the farm? Does the farm family enjoy as high a standard of living as the city family? What is the relative enjoyment each gets from its expenditures for the satisfaction of the higher human wants?

These questions are often discussed, but usually with little or no actual first-hand information on which to base the discussions.
