Negro Population.
The negro population of Texas com-
prises 15 9 per cent of the whole, ac-
cepting 1920 census figures. TWhile the
negro population has increased slowly
during the last few census enumerations,
it has decreased in proportion to the total
population. This is due to the fact that
there is little negro migration from the
States of the Old South Into Texas Texas
has been affected to some extent by
negro migration to the North, which has
been attracting attention since 1920, hut
the movement of negi ocs from Texas has
been small compared with that from many
of the Southern States east of the Mis-
sissippi The negro population lies prin-
cipally in the eastern, southern and south-
eastern sections of the State and extend-
ing westward through the eastern half
of Central Texas.
