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]
