  • Abstract

    This collection consists of data describing agricultural organization, production, and land management in 50 provinces of European Russia at the turn of the century. Data are derived from the first universal Russian census of population (1897), statistics on landowners (1905), and the Cavalry Censuses of 1896 and 1899-1900. The agricultural model is presented in terms of the number of agricultural workers per place of employment, land allotment per capita, ratio of land leased to peasants to investment property, per capita collection of crops and sown area, productivity of livestock, and cost of land and crops.
