The first substantial wave of British immigrants into New Zealand brought this way of thinking and subsequent waves strengthened it. By the early 1900s, it was a unionized society categorized by the breadwinners wage, which in turn largely determined the chances his wife and children would be given in life. The New Zealand census reflected this attitude by introducing an occupational census, largely ignoring many features of the colonial workforce and following its British counterpart. Class and Occupation is the first systematic attempt to identify New Zealands actual occupational structure from 1893 to 1938, using the information gathered by the census.

Six essays consider how best to construct an occupational structure for both the whole country and for regions/localities within it. Identification of changes in occupational structure occurring across the period casts light on social change in New Zealand and, significantly, womens participation in the paid non-agricultural workforce.
