Our group included persons of diverse economic experience and differing political opinions. In order to supplement the information given in official returns and to assist to a fuller realisation of what the present depression actually meant in the private and public life of the country, we instituted a series of inquiries into unemployment in nine selected localities. The reports of these seemed of such interest, that we decided to print them and to offer them to the public as a contribution to an understanding of the present emergency.These local investigations were undertaken at short notice by seven different investigators independently. They had to guide them a questionnaire indicating the points on which information was sought, but time did not permit of their meeting to discuss methods or results, and the nine localities investigated were widely scattered and of very different industrial characteristics. The large measure of agreement, therefore, in the impressions they present is quite spontaneous and must be attributed to the similarity of conditions in the different localities. There are, of course, important differ ences, and the reports bring out the complexity of the social problem presented by unemployment; but they Show the features in the situation common to the whole country, such as the abnormal extent of the depression and the effects of the relief measures that are national in their scope, and thus supplement the available 0 icial information.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
