Comanche County Has Large Families
The average size of a Texas family is 4.9 compared with 5.4 ten years ago. The average family in Comanche contains 5.1 persons and we have 5272 families residing in this county according to a census report which has just been issued. Comanche is one of the 117 Texas counties whose families are larger than the State’s average and if all the families in the state were as large as those of our county, Texas’ population would be nearer the five million mark.
