Resulting from work initiated by Sir John Sinclair, the Statistical Accounts of Scotland were undertaken during 1791-99 and 1834-45, and covers the whole of Scotland at a parish level. They include a range of quantitative and qualitative information, including demographic and occupation figures, prices, wages and land rents, but have hitherto not been subject to systematic empirical analysis. This seminar will focus on the background of the Accounts and the empirical data that may be extracted from them, before a brief discussion of the spatial economic analysis I have proposed to undertake as part of a PhD in economics.

This talk is part of the Quantitative History Seminar series.
