hopewateriiThis site provides downloadable data I have collected and used in various publications.  Feel free to download the files and contact me if you have any questions.  Should you use these figures for formal research, please provide attribution  by citing me, the website, and original source and archive. Commodification of the data in any format is prohibited. Note that I haven’t provided formal code books, but most of it should be fairly self-explanatory. Again, email me if you have any questions.

I have also included external links to databases, archival sources, and research tools that I have found essential or relevant to my research.  The review-section blog page focuses on West Indian history and British abolition, but I do branch off into other areas from time-to-time.
