Enflo, Kerstin LU and Missiaia, Anna LU (2018) In Historical Methods
Abstract
This paper provides regional GDP estimates for the 24 Swedish regions (NUTS-3) for the benchmark year 1571 and for 11 ten-year benchmarks for the period 1750–1850. The 1571 estimates are based on tax sources and agricultural statistics. The 1750–1850 estimates are produced following the widely used methodology by Geary and Stark (2002): labour force figures from population censuses at regional level are used to allocate to regions the national estimates of agriculture, industry andservices while wages are used to correct for productivity differentials. By connecting our series to the existing ones by Enflo, Henning, and Schon ( € 2014) for the period 1860–2010, we are able to produce the longest set of regional GDP series to date for any... (More)
