Abstract

The present essay is part of a study of household structure and social mobility in the Austrian city of Graz during the second half of the nineteenth century. The findings come from a sample of 1,102 households containing 5,139 persons that was extracted systematically from the manuscripts of the Austrian census of October, 1857. These persons and their descendents were traced in subsequent censuses in 1869, 1880, 1890, 1900 and 1910. The linkage was undertaken by hand with the aid of semi-alphabetized indices bequeathed by the Austrian census authorities; name, birthdate, and birthplace were used to establish correctness of the linkage. The data contained in the Austrian census manuscripts differ little from that in the censuses of other countries; there is, however, no direct information on wealth or income; on the other hand, there are reasonably unambiguous data on occupation, position in occupation, and relationship to household head.
