Description
  • Abstract

    The study is focused on the wages` and salaries` proportions in the era before World War I. In respect thereof, a working hypothesis is: The proportion of wages and salaries as to the national income increases in the course of the economic progress because (and as long as) the proportion of the wage and salary earners compared to the total number of income recipients increases too; both proportions are higher in national economies with highly-developed industries as compared to less developed agricultural regions. The correlation between the income proportion generated from employed work and the national income on the one hand, and the weight of the employed part of the population within the body of socio-economic groups on the other, is explained in this study. Moreover, an empirical documentation is realised hereby. Factual classification of corresponding data tables in ZA-Database HISTAT: A.
