Household Occupations in 1920

January 5, 2010

In reviewing a 1920 census of school children in Park View — a survey I’ll share in full in the future — I found the following data interesting. Based on 1,750 fathers of school age children in Park View, the occupations in the following chart were listed. This data does not include information for 24% of Park View families, as those families were childless.

Even with the limitations of the 1920 census, it provides an interesting snapshot of how people that lived in the neighborhood earned a living.

Using roughly the same categories that were used in 1920, take the survey below. I think it would be interesting to see what the employment makeup of the neighborhood is today.
