A bulletin just issued by the Bureau of the Census shows that the number of teachers in schools, colleges, and universities exceeds the total number of clergymen, physicians, and lawyers. In continental United States in 1900 there were 140 teachers for every 10,000 persons between the ages of five and twenty-five, which represents an average of one teacher for seventy-one potential pupils. According to this method of comparison the supply of teachers is increasing, and has more than doubled within the last thirty years. In 1900 Nevada had the largest proportional number of teachers reported in any State or Territory; Vermont was the second State in this respect, Maine the third, and Iowa the fourth. The proportion of teachers in Continental United States is smaller than in England and Wales, but greater than in Germany, France, Italy, Canada, Mexico, or Cuba.
