Occupational mobility in Victorian and Edwardian England

About me

Ziming’s research focuses on occupational mobility in Victorian and Edwardian England. His thesis will estimate intragenerational and intergenerational occupational mobility in England between 1851 and 1911 using linked census data. He is also interested in migration, and particularly in comparing occupational mobility between Irish and English migrants to better understand the extent of migrant assimilation and economic integration in nineteenth and early-twentieth century England.

Ziming completed his BSc in Economic History at LSE before obtaining an MPhil in Economic and Social History at the University of Cambridge.
