In Statistics of the Negroes in the United States Gannett notes that African Americans mostly resided in rural areas in the South and had made tremendous gains in obtaining education. In Occupations of the Negroes he states that African Americans were chiefly employed in agriculture or as personal servants and reports that they had made few inroads into industry or business but had succeeded in acquiring more real estate.
