"This report was the first to appear under the imprint of the Institute for Behavioural Research at York University. The report is based on a case study of the history of social structure and family organization, focusing on Hamilton, Ontario during the third quarter of the 19th century. Project scope was widened in 1975 to include Buffalo and rural Erie County, New York in the mid-nineteenth century.
The report proposed to study two problems: "differential fertility during early industrialization and the relationship between social structure, public policy, and the causalities of industrial society." The report consists of working papers, not published works."
