Life and Poverty in the Maritimes.
Five areas in the Maritime Provinces of Canada were subjected to intensive geographical, economic, and sociological surveys in an attempt to determine and define poverty illustratively rather than statistically. Information was obtained by in-residence researchers on bio-physical setting, settlement, population, labor and economic activity, fisheries, rural milieu and agriculture, mining, and forestry. Although it was concluded that a precise definition could not be drawn from the survey, the results were presented as being an aid to the understanding of certain geographic areas in relation to poverty.
