Dimensions of urban social structure; the social areas of Melbourne, Australia by Frank Lancaster Jones( Book )

17 editions published between 1969 and 2017 in English and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The physical segregation of social groups in industrial cities has long attracted the attention of social scientist and casual observer alike. In Australia the possibility of mapping the social ecology of large cities has been limited by the absence of sufficiently detailed census of information, a gap remedied in 1961 by the provision of a new range of small area data. Here the author exploits the existence of the new information to present the first intensive social anatomy of any Australian metropolis. Statistics on the residential concentration and segregation of seventy socioeconomic, demographic, ethnic, and religious categories are examined, and the vast complexity and range of these data are reduced by sophisticated techniques of statistical analysis to three theoretically meaningful constructs--social rank, familism, and ethnicity. These constructs are used to develop a typology of social areas which serves as the basis for developing an understanding of and further hypotheses about, urban social structure. Not only does this analysis present a self-contained study of Australia's second largest metropolis, but detailed maps and statistical appendixes provide a benchmark for future social investigations into the urban scene--on subjects such as political preference, immigrant adjustment, poverty, crime, delinquency, and urban planning

An accidental utopia? : social mobility & the foundations of an egalitarian society, 1880-1940 by Erik Olssen( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While class is their central focus, the authors also explore how religious and ethnic divisions were rendered more marginal than in similar communities in urban Britain or the United States. The final chapter asks to what extent the remarkably fluid social patterns in southern Dunedin resulted from deliberate choices made by the first settlers and their descendants. Certainly egalitarian tendencies and various forms of mobility came together there to create a special place, both in the character of local society and in its contribution to making New Zealand a laboratory for social reform' in the 1890's and again in the 1930's. By interweaving class and culture, structure and agency, the authors provide new insights into the making of modern New Zealand. --Book Jacket

Ancestry groups in Australia : a descriptive overview by F. L Jones( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the number and size of different ethnic groups in the Australian population has increased, so has the demand for a measure of ethnicity that goes beyond data collected in earlier Australian censuses, including birthplace, religion, race, and more recently, birthplace of parents. This report and the data in the attached sets of Appendix tables provide a descriptive overview of the social and demographic characteristics of 57 distinct ancestry groups in Australia, separately for each of 3 immigrant generations. The first consists of people born in countries other than Australia, and the second consists of people born in Australia with one or both parents born overseas. The third and older generations comprise people born in Australia of Australian parentage. Data used to prepare the tables in this report come from six special tabulations prepared by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The following chapters are included: (1) "Ethnicity in the Australian Census"; (2) "Ancestry and Immigrant Generations in the 1986 Census"; (3) "Cautionary Remarks on Immigrant Generations"; (4) "Urban/Rural Residence, Ancestry, and Immigration Generation"; (5) "Age Structure, Ancestry, and Immigrant Generation"; (6) "Ancestry, Immigrant Generation, and School-Leaving Age"; (7) "Ancestry, Immigrant Generation, and Qualifications"; (8) "Ancestry, Immigrant Generation, and Economic Activity"; (9) "Ancestry, Immigrant Generation, and Occupation"; (10) "Ancestry, Immigrant Generation, and Family Income"; and (11) "Ancestry, Immigrant Generation, and Religion." Appendixes contain tables on first-generation immigrants, second generation, and third- and earlier generation Australians. (Contains 81 tables, including those in appendixes, and 4 references.)
