This survey, first published in 1934, was designed as a contribution to our knowledge of poverty, its incidence and causes. Poverty is a product of many variables, and it needs to be understood as an expression of a complex of economic and other social forces. This study therefore goes beyond the immediate facts, and investigates some of the factors which have influenced the growth of population, the earning strength of families and the economic life of the town and port.
