Data sources for estimating economic statistics in medieval times

This page describes data sources used for estimating economic statistics in medieval times, specifically in cases where no official statistics estimates are present.

Notes

  • Joseon Korea: wealthy/elite (yangban) genealogical records, accounts of rice costs and interest rates, wages as set down in various record books, changes in land value as indicated in clan and local registers[1]
  • Tokugawa Japan had something like official statistics already? Wow! [2]
