Philip O'Regan & Brendan Halpin: Class, Status and the Stratification of Residential Preferences amongst Accountants [Abstract]

Using data from the 1911 Irish Census, and adopting a Weberian focus, this paper investigates the separate explanatory power of class and status in the stratification of outcomes.

We also demonstrate the usefulness of considering the experience of accountants in a comparative context.
