Beskrivning av uttaget: Analysts and system developers at CEDAR, the Demographic Database, have delivered a data retrieval to the researcher Anna Missiaia, Lund University, from the TABVERK database.
The researcher look at the case of Sweden, a late industrializer that developed into one of the most dynamic economies of the continent. The aim is to construct a database on the occupational structure of the Swedish parishes by gender from 1640 to 1900 using both censuses (from 1750) and non-conventional sources such as tax records and probate inventories (for 1640-1750). To collect information on this earlier period, we use Automated Text Recognition techniques and for all periods we rely on GIS.
The Swedish case will provide a methodological model at the European level for constructing pre-industrial occupational structures as well as a term of comparison of a late industrializer to the existing evidence on Britain.
Data is retrieved from the database TABVERK. TABVERK is a database created to facilitate data retrievals to researchers from many different research fields. It is created with registered data from population and mortality forms from Tabellverket.
