Abstract

BY WAY OF CODING AND NOMINAL RECORD LINKAGE. THE SEARCH FOR THE BRITISH MIDDLE CLASS R. J. MORRIS QUANTITATIVE Two characteristic features of the computing power of the late twentieth century have been extensively exploited by hisrians, namely the ability handle large amounts of information and do this in a systematic manner. This has involved a movement from the the quantitative, from the particular the general. This is a movement which requires the mediation of social science concepts and criticism as well as numerical if not statistical skills. This article demonstrates the exploitation of a very characteristic source, the nominal record gether with the value added that source by the techniques of nominal record linkage and coding (in this case occupational coding). The example is based upon a long-standing enquiry in the nature of the British middle classes in the first half of the nineteenth century.1 The method chosen that of the community study.
