Publication Abstract

Leonard, Susan Hautaniemi, Douglas L. Anderton, and Alan C. Swedlund. 2000. "Methods and Validity of Record Linkage: Matching 1850-1912 Census and Death Records in Two Massachusetts Towns." Historical Methods, 33: 1.

The objectives of this demography project are to examine various aspects of urban and industrial change significant to the continuing high levels of mortality in select rapidly growing Massachusetts towns of the late 19th century.
