Class, status and the stratification of residential preferences amongst accountants
O'Regan, Philip; Halpin, Brendan
Drawing primarily on data from the 1911 Irish Census, and adopting a specifically Weberian focus, this paper investigates the separate explanatory power of class and status in the stratification of outcomes. Specifically we find that both class and status do have independent explanatory power in terms of the geographical residential patterns of various occupations, including accountants, in early twentieth-century Dublin, Ireland. We also demonstrate the usefulness of considering the experience of accountants in a comparative context.
