Reserve Ask us a question

First edition of the sequel to the study Livelihood and Poverty (1915), which analysed working-class households in Northampton, Warrington, Reading, Bolton and Stanley according to conditions such as wages, family size, and standards of living. Has Poverty Diminished? presents the results of a follow-up study of the same areas and seeks to "ascertain the general effects of the events of the past ten years on these conditions, by investigating the same towns by as nearly as possible the same methods" (p. 1).
