Galloway Prussia Database 1861 to 1914
As a result of numerous inquiries, I have made available my set of Prussia data files. The following files contain data I use in my publications about Prussia. I include the Prussia Code Book updated to 2007. Download. Each page provides information about one or more data files. It usually includes a copy of a page from the source book for the first record, usually Memel.
It might be helpful to the user to have access to the
original source volumes, should questions about interpretation arise. The user
might want to look at "Fertility decline in Prussia 1875 to 1910: a pooled
cross-section time series analysis", Population Studies, 1994, vol. 48,
no. 1, pp. 135-158. Download. My succinct
description of the Prussia data set is included in it, along with an
application of the data set to the study of fertility decline in Prussia
between 1875 and 1910.
I created an inventory of the socioeconomic data that I found useful in Preussische Statistik, Statistik des Deutschen Reichs, and other official publications of the time in "Prussia vital registration and census data description tables 1849 to 1914 using Kreise and cities >20,000 as units of analysis", 1988, updated in 2007. Download.
Only a very small portion of the total data available in the volumes of Preussische Statistik, Statistik des Deutschen Reichs, and other official publications has been made machine-readable.
You may download all the files in the database to your computer as one zip file. They are in .XLS format (Microsoft Excel). Download.
The data may not be used for commercial purposes without the permission of Patrick R. Galloway.
