Household Mobility and Persistence in Guadalajara, Mexico 1811-1842


Free Download Monica L. Hardin, "Household Mobility and Persistence in Guadalajara, Mexico: 1811-1842"
English | ISBN: 1498540716 | 2016 | 164 pages | EPUB | 6 MB
1821 Guadalajara, Mexico exhibited surprising mobility within its population. Using data from the back-to-back censuses of 1821 and 1822, this study argues that mobility affected almost every individual who lived in Guadalajara during that time period. The methodology used traces individuals who persisted from one year to the next to determine overall rates of mobility. An analysis of short-term stability and change within this set of historically identifiable individuals, families and households reveals a process of mobility that not only has been neglected by studies based on aggregate data, but that is often at variance with the findings of those studies. The evidence shows that a significant portion of the extensive movement of individuals to and from the wards is short term and often cyclical, rather than long term and permanent. Additionally, data sets from 1811-1813 and 1839-1842 are used as "control groups" to conclude that the mobility in 1821-1822 was not a unique historical event based on circumstances, but an overarching trend throughout the nineteenth century.

Household Behaviour, Prices, and Welfare A Collection of Essays Including Selected Empirical Studies


Free Download Household Behaviour, Prices, and Welfare: A Collection of Essays Including Selected Empirical Studies by Ranjan Ray
English | EPUB (True) | 2018 | 442 Pages | ISBN : 9811319294 | 8.3 MB
This collection of essays covers a diverse set of topics related to household behavior and welfare. Prices play a key role in several of the essays, particularly the distributional implications of price movements, and the effects of changes in relative prices on inequality and poverty. This book shows the shift in the literature on prices from being an exclusively macro topic featuring the study of inflation and cross-country comparisons to one that is firmly rooted in micro theory-based analysis of household behavior. It also includes recent developments in the poverty measurement literature, documenting the shift from the exclusively money metric and unidimensional poverty measures to multidimensional poverty encompassing a wider view of deprivation. Largely, but not exclusively, focusing on India, the book also features global comparisons of welfare. Intra country spatial comparisons along with cross country comparisons of household behavior and welfare feature in several of the essays in this book. The book also compares the effects of selected public delivery schemes in India on the health of its children. It is a useful resource for researchers and serves as reading material for advanced graduate courses on development in India and elsewhere.

Gleaning for Communism The Soviet Socialist Household in Theory and Practice


Free Download Xenia A. Cherkaev, "Gleaning for Communism: The Soviet Socialist Household in Theory and Practice"
English | ISBN: 1501770233 | 2023 | 210 pages | PDF | 2 MB
Gleaning for Communism is a historical ethnography of the property regime upon which Soviet legal scholars legislated a large modern state as a household, with guaranteed rights to a commons of socialist property, rather than private possessions. Starting with former Leningrad workers’ everyday stories about smuggling industrial scrap home over factory fences, Xenia Cherkaev traces collectivist ethical logic that was central to this socialist household economy, in theory and practice: from its Stalin-era inception, through Khrushchev’s major foregrounding of communist ethics, to Gorbachev’s perestroika, which unfurled its grounding tension between the interests of any given collective and of the socialist household economy itself.
