Description
  • Abstract

    This study offers a broad methodical basis for the evaluation of the price development in Germany after the Napoleonic Wars. Hereby historical sources are considered for the calculation of a total index number, which represent the changes in several commodity prices in a single column of numbers. This process is targeted on an insight in the changes of the entire price level, reflecting the purchasing power of the respective currency as well. Tables in HISTAT: A.1 Average exchange rate of the mark courant of Hamburg as to the cark banco (1792-1872). A.2 Average agio for 100 taler courant against coin at 42 Groschen (the German groat) per taler (1816-1823) A.3 Value of 100 taler ‘Münze’ (‘coin’) in the cities of Berlin, Breslau and Königsberg (1808-1823) B.1 Weighing, partial index numbers – ratio in percent (1820-1913) B.2 Proportion of collective groups with alternatingly weighed total index number in percent (1792-1933) B.3 Proportion of single groups with alternatingly weighed total index number in percent (1792-19330) C.1 Price index numbers of commodities, 1913 = 100 (1792-1934) C.2 Group and total index numbers weighed on a constantly equal basis, 1913=100 (1792-1934) C.3.1 Group and total index numbers for periods with temporarily different weighing bases, 1820=100 (1792-1830) C.3.2 Group and total index numbers for periods with temporarily different weighing bases, 1840=100 (1820-1850) C.3.3 Group and total index numbers for periods with temporarily different weighing bases, 1860=100 (1840-1873) C.3.4 Group and total index numbers for periods with temporarily different weighing bases, 1880=100 (1860-1895) C.3.5 Group and total index numbers for periods with temporarily different weighing bases, 1913=100 (1885-1934) C.4 Group and total index numbers with alternating weighing, 1913=100 (1792-1934) D.1 Index numbers of wholesale prices in Great Britain, France, and the United States, 1913=100 (1791-1934) D.2 Wholesale price index numbers of raw materials for industrial and consumer goods (industrial raw materials), 1913=100 (1791-1934) D.3 Index numbers of prices for fatstock and products of animal origin, 1913=100 (1792-1934) E.1 Operational length of the German railway system (1840-1930) E.2 Telegraph and phone lines; phone facilities (1885-1932) E.3 Number of German seagoing vessels in 1,000 NRT (1871-1934)
