Summary
This data collection consists of detailed examinations of various facets of life in Detroit in the years from 1880 through 1900. Data from 13 different primary sources (such as the manuscript censuses) were collected to analyze the effect that technological innovation and the environmental change that went with it had on the American social structure. Detroit is seen as a city that experienced all the problems of industrialization, as well as the advantages. It had a diverse ethnic population and grew rapidly in the years from 1880-1900. In addition to 1880 and 1900 census information, the study variables elicit information pertaining to the lifestyles, work experiences, and nationalities of people employed in various trades, including furniture making, railroad work, and vehicle manufacturing. The files on land use in 1880 and 1900 contain information on the number, type, and use of buildings in a given block. The files entitled, Charities and Women, contain information on nationality of respondents, their health and the health of their children, their current and previous residences, income, and property owned
