(p.240) 7 Some Characteristics of Insolvency Levels
Victorian Insolvency

V. Markham Lester

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the characteristics of insolvency levels in England during the 19th century. The findings indicate that some insolvency in particular trades was being handled outside the system and that occupations had different levels of bankruptcy. The analyses also reveal that while insolvency declined in the two or three decades before 1913, the rate of bankruptcy did not decline in all occupations, and that small businesses were more susceptible to bankruptcy.
