Description
  • Abstract

    This is the replication package for "The cream of the crop? geography networks and Irish migrant selection" (Journal of Economic History).

    Summary: During the Age of Mass Migration (1850-1913), Ireland had a higher emigration rate than any other major migrant sending country. This paper examines how emigrants from Ireland compared to the people they left behind. Irish emigrants were disproportionately drawn from poorer farming and less literature households (negatively selected), and this negative selection was exacerbated by high emigration from communities with established migrant networks.
