The core did not lose forepersons and supervisors or skilled production workers to the same extent as the inner city as a whole: in spite of deindustrialization and redevelopment, the working-class character of some neighbourhoods in the core was retained in 1981. The increase in professionals is striking, as is the shift from an over-representation to an under-representation of specialized white-collar workers, compared to the CMA, in both the inner city as a whole and its core, owing no doubt to suburbanization of white-collar families.

The increase in polarization is sharper in the inner city and sharper still in the core area. The occupational composition of the resident labour force (both sexes) in the inner city and its central core in 1971 and 1981 are shown in Figures 2(a) and 2(b). While the patterns are broadly similar in the inner city and the core, in the latter we find lower proportions of managers and higher proportions of non-specialized clerical, sales, and service workers. The central core also shows a slight decrease in specialized white-collar and technical workers and an increase in low-skilled production workers, opposite trends to those for the inner city as a whole.
