Bennett, R., Montebruno, P., Smith, H., & Van Lieshout, C. (2019). Reconstructing entrepreneur and business numbers for censuses 1851-81. https://doi.org/10.17863/CAM.37738
This paper discusses how census data for 1851-1881 can be reconstructed to give the employment status of individuals as own account self-employed, employers, or workers. The aim is to align information on entrepreneurs given in these earlier censuses with the information given in the later censuses from 1891 up to the present. The paper describes the reconstruction methods used and provides the essential background documentation for using the data at aggregate and individual level.
