October 24, 2020

Nuno Palma and Jaime Reis constructed a data set on Portugal’s per capita GDP for the period 1527–1850. The authors discuss the data in their 2019 JEH paper and made it available here. We encourage other authors to let us know the data they can share with the research community. We are willing to announce it.
