Study Number:801
Catalog Date:03/18/1998
Primary Investigator(s):Parker, William N., Robert E. Gallman

Abstract:This study presents 1860 data on population and farm production in 5,228 farms located in 405 major cotton-producing counties in the South. The data was compiled from the agriculture, slave, and population schedules of the 1860 United States manuscript Census. For each farm, variables describing farm land, machinery, crops, and livestock are included, as well as production figures for specific crops and types of livestock on the farm. The population variables tabulate the free and slave residents of each farm by sex, race, and age in five- or ten-year categories.
Universe:All farms located in Southern counties that produced over 1,000 bales of cotton in 1860.
