A woman's place?
A woman's place?
Some census enumerators were reluctant to include work done in the home in their returns. In other cases, women did not record it as work because it was paid in kind or was done on an informal basis, and jobs performed by the whole family were often ignored. All these factors meant that work done by women in the home was under-recorded.
