This study shows in line with some previous reaches that the importance of the households persisted throughout the period. It is also concluded that the economic conditions of the British working households could vary greatly. Poverty could occasionally be very palpable and often more than one person was needed to contribute to the income of the household. The employer quite often had a great influence over the family life. (Less)
