Summary

The 1899 census for Puerto Rico carried out by the US War Department, the subsequent decennial censuses of the island carried out by the US Census Bureau in 1910, 1920, and 1930, and the 1935 special census for Puerto Rico carried out by the Puerto Rico Reconstruction Authority permit a series of statistical calculations that may be used to estimate the percentage of rural families on the island who did not own land in each census year. These data may be used to measure whether there were significant changes over time on the island as a whole and in regions characterized by the predominance of the major export crops, sugar, coffee, and tobacco.
