Description
  • Abstract

    Previously available data sets from a project group were integrated regarding the occupational group classification used and augmented by personal surveys from registry office records and church registers. This yielded an over-view presentation which comparatively analyses the results on 12 villages or cities, each with a different structure in various regions of Germany.
