About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1937, this book was written by the pioneering British statistician and economist Arthur Lyon Bowley (1869–1957). The text provides a statistical analysis of wages and income in the United Kingdom from 1860 onwards, attempting 'to bring into a coherent whole' the work carried out in this area by Bowley during the preceding 40 years. A bibliography is included and notes are incorporated throughout. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in wages, statistics and British economic history.
