His interpretation of the data is that family formation in Saint-Hyacinthe was profoundly affected as couples adjusted to the new urban, industrial setting. Gossage demonstrates that demographic behaviour was increasingly differentiated by social class, with distinct marriage and fertility patterns emerging among bourgeois and proletarian families."--BOOK JACKET.
