This dataset contains population estimates of all European cities with at least 10,000 inhabitants during the period 1500-1800. These data are adapted from Jan De Vries, "European Urbanization, 1500-1800" (1984).
Historical population estimates of European cities, 1500-1800, as compiled by Jan De Vries, European Urbanization, 1500-1800 (Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1984), Appendix I.
With this package, I have also included a table of coordinates for each city in
NEWS.mdfile to track changes to the package.
