RODRIGUEZ, María Laura; CARBONETTI, Adrián; RIVERO, María Dolores  and  FANTIN, María Alejandra. Health occupations in the Argentinean territory: Perspectives from the National 1869, 1895 and 1914 Censuses. Poblac. soc. [online]. 2018, vol.25, n.1, pp.75-101. ISSN 1852-8562.

We have studied the growth and distribution of specific healthcare occupations in the Argentine territory starting from the first national population censuses. We show the complexity underlying those "optimistic" interpretations of the era that associated the growth in occupation with the progressive State consolidation and the ascending socioeconomic development of Argentina in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. We show the census values, focusing on differential situations that help explain the trajectories in the Argentine provinces. We consider socioeconomic cleavages, the presence of the State and the occupations consolidation processes.

Keywords : Argentina; Occupations of health; National population censuses; Distribution; Divergences.
