Datasets

The datasets being produced by the Occupational Structure of Britain c.1379-1911 research program are of use for a multitude of research purposes beyond those for which we originally created them. Our datasets are already in use by a remarkably diverse set of scholars and research teams around the world. Existing users come not just from economic history but also include: archaeologists, business historians, economists, historical geographers, medical historians, social historians, sociologists, policy makers, political scientists, and even psychologists.

Information on third party publications arising from the use of our datasets, data access and collaborative possibilities are given elsewhere on this website. For examples of current uses of the datasets see below:
