  • Abstract

    This is the replication package for the causes of indentureship. This project aggregates individual records for Indian indentured servants to Fiji, Jamaica, Natal, and Suriname for various years, ca. 1873-1916. This project analyzes how prices and wages push and pull indentured servants. These files enable a user to replicate the figures and tables from the project data.
