Abstract

The Historical Database of Scanian Agriculture (HDSA) is a micro-level database over farm production in the most southern Swedish region of Scania (Skåne) based on flexible tithes. It contains over 85,000 farm level observations of both vegetable and animal production for the period 1702 to 1881. Moreover, this information is supplemented by information on the farmer, the farm, on enclosures, natural conditions, and distances from the farmstead to towns.A presentation of the sources behind the data, the composition of the sample, and the way the database can be used to estimate production is found in Olsson, M. & P. Svensson (2017), “Estimating agricultural production in Scania, 1702–1881. User guide for the Historical Database of Scanian Agriculture.”Lund Papers in Economic History 151, Lund University.
