Atlas of Victorian and Edwardian Population

Acknowledgements

The Populations Past website and the associated research project, An Atlas of Victorian Fertility Decline, have been funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and the Isaac Newton Trust (Cambridge). We would like to acknowledge the generous financial support of these bodies.

The project is based at the Cambridge Group for the History of Population and Social Structure, in the Department of Geography, University of Cambridge, with project members also based at the University of Essex.

The data displayed here have been produced by the 'Atlas of Victorian Fertility Decline' project (PI: A.M. Reid) with funding from the ESRC (ES/L015463/1), using an enhanced version of data from Schürer, K. and Higgs, E. (2014). Integrated Census Microdata (I-CeM), 1851?1911. [data collection]. Colchester, Essex: UK Data Archive [distributor]. SN: 7481, http://dx.doi.org/10.5255/UKDA-SN-7481-1.

Boundary data have been created for the project by Joe Day. Citation: Day, J.D. Registration sub-district boundaries for England and Wales 1851-1911 (2016). This dataset was created by the 'Atlas of Victorian Fertility Decline' project (PI: A.M. Reid) with funding from the ESRC (ES/L015463/1). The Day dataset has been created using Satchell, A.E.M., Kitson, P.M.K., Newton, G.H., Shaw-Taylor, L., and Wrigley E.A., 1851 England and Wales census parishes, townships and places (2016) available at: https://www.campop.geog.cam.ac.uk/research/occupations/datasets/catalogues/documentation/. The Satchell et al dataset is an enhanced version of Burton, N, Westwood J., and Carter P., GIS of the ancient parishes of England and Wales, 1500-1850. Colchester, Essex: UK Data Archive (May 2004), SN 4828, which is a GIS version of Kain, R.J.P., and Oliver, R.R., Historic parishes of England and Wales: An electronic map of boundaries before 1850 with a gazetteer and metadata. Colchester, Essex: UK Data Archive, May, 2001. SN 4348.
