    This component of the Philadelphia Social History Project highlights Philadelphia manufacturing industry data collected in census years 1850, 1860, 1870, and 1880. Business level data includes company name, type of business, amount of capital, and number of active months per year. Workforce information includes average number of male, female, and child employees, occupations, average wages per month by sex, and total wages per year. Production details for each manufacturing firm consist of type of power used, horsepower, number and types of machines, value and number of materials, and value and number of products. Geographic variables include district, ward, x- and y-coordinates, street name, and street direction.
