Description

  • Abstract

    The problem of comparing historical data with common variables from two or more distinct locations remains an open question in historical studies. The issues of formulating suitable historical models and comparing them, using appropriate statistical models and techniques, are the topics of this paper. These matters are first discussed in general and a number of possible techniques outlined in concept. The advantages and disadvantages of each are summarised. The question of distinguishing between differences of structure and differences of degree, in the presence of measurement error, is then considered in greater detail with reference to factor analysis and the New Zealand provincial data base, 1853-1930.
