Description
  • Abstract

    This is a replication package for "the Persistence of the Harvest in Medieval England."

    Notes for replicating results from “The Persistence of the Harvest in Medieval England.”
    The two data files contain yields per acre and per seed, the rest of the control variables are the same for both files. Format is STATA data file.
    File 1: yieldsperacre.dta File 2: yieldperseed.dta
    File 1 is used to produce Panel A for most tables (i.e., those tables having two panels), file 2 produces Panel B for most tables.
    List of variables in data files:
    • yldw: wheat yields (per seed or acre) with date stub
    • yldo: oat yields (per seed or acre) with date stub
    • yldb: barley yields (per seed or acre) with date stub
    • sow: typical sow rates for wheat by period
    • sowo: typical sow rates for oats by period
    • sow: typical sow rates for barley by period
    • ani: typical # of draft animals by manor by period
    • acres: mean acres sown by period by manor
    • sheep: typical # of sheep by manor by period
    • precip: measured precipitation by year
    • preciptr: 30 year moving average of precipitation
    • temp: measured temperature by year
    • tempr: 30 year moving average of temperature
    • dpop: change in manor’s population density over period
    • pop: population level in period
    • dis: distance of manor to London
    • croptype: code for crop mix, from Campbell
    • hustype: code for husbandry, from Campbell
    • farmtype: code for farming strategy, from Campbell
    • soiltype: code for soil make up, geology of manor, from Campbell
    The provided STATA *.do files are listed by the relevant table or figure in the text that they produce. Each do-file uses either data file 1 or data file 2 depending on which panel of the relevant table is produced. To use the do file replace wd with your relevant data and working directory. All of the do files contain redundant code, they can be used for “stand alone” analysis in addition to producing the relevant table/figure.
