Epstein Lecture 2024: 217 million census records: evidence from linked census data
Speaker: James Feigenbaum, Boston University
Thursday 7 March, 6.30-8pm, Auditorium, Centre Building, and online
New historical census sources and advances in record linking technology, allow economic historians to become big data genealogists. In this lecture, James Feigenbaum will show how the ability to link individuals over time, and between databases, means that new avenues for research have opened up, thus allowing us to track intergenerational mobility, assimilation, discrimination and the returns to education.
No ticket or pre-registration is required for the in-person event, as entry is on a first come, first served basis.
Registration for the online event will open after 10am, Thursday 15 February 2023.
