Summary tables for Births, Deaths and Marriages in England and Wales from Annual report of the Registrar General

  • UKLSE-DL1GR01
  • Collection
  • 1839-1842

The data presented consists of 3 tables in csv format which show the numbers of births, marriages and deaths in English and Welsh regions for the years stated. These were extracted from image files of digitised printed material in LSE Library. The aim was to make that data more easily processed by the end-user in spreadsheet format.

The initial digitisation was the result of a project at LSE Library. The resulting corpus of materials consists of lengthy runs (some complete) of a series of publications including The Labour Gazette, The Annual Report of the Registrar General and the Census of Production. The Library, in conjunction with LSE’s Department of Economic History, began the digitisation project in 2018. This has made a substantial collection of materials available which can be used by members of the faculty (and beyond) for research and teaching purposes.

A second phase of the project attempted to extract tables from image files from the early years of the Annual Reports of the Registrar General. The aim was to convert the large amounts of valuable data across the publications into an open format so that it could be re-used, repurposed and analysed more easily in statistical analysis software. While the extraction proved considerably challenging, the extracted tables are relatively excellent reproductions and have been well rendered as csv files.

Note: Care has been taken to ensure the fidelity of the content of the tables but we cannot guarantee that the automated processes we have used have always captured this correctly. Some data cleansing may therefore be needed to be carried out as a result. The materials can be double checked against the originals which are available online at [Annual report of the Registrar General of births, deaths and marriages in England and Wales](https://lse-atom.arkivum.net/uklse-dl1eh01002).

Inter-war Feminist Pamphlet Collection

  • UKLSE-DL1IF01
  • Collection
  • 1918-1940
This set of pamphlets are drawn from The Women’s Library and related collections at LSE Library and they document women’s rights and their engagement in politics and public life from 1918-1940. These titles evidence the ideas and activities of women’s organisations, individual campaigners, reformers and women in public life. Also included are perspectives of politicians, governments, and intergovernmental organisations, as they responded (or failed to respond) to issues raised by advocates of women’s equality and rights.
The digitisation of these pamphlets was undertaken in partnership with Jisc in 2019 as part of the Digitising Social Movements of the 20th Century project: https://www.jisc.ac.uk/rd/projects/digitising-20th-century-social-movements
