Poor law statistics and the geography of economic distress

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


    This paper is among the first systematic investigations of spatial variations in Poor Relief at a national scale. It forms part of my continuing research on the antecedents of the ‘North-South’ divide in Britain, a division defined most commonly, in economic terms and for policy purposes, in terms of unemployment.
