The main goal of this project is to engage in analysis of the development of the Finnish economy in the period 1500–1860, for which will use the data produced in the project along with other domestic and international data to provide a larger context for the analysis.Most of the series used in the existing literature are available for Fin-land only from the 1860s onwards, and subsequently Finland has been mostly ignored in international comparative studies that emphasize long-run economic changes. Therefore, the objectives of the proposed project are: 1) to provide new data and thus, more accurate picture of the Finnish socio-economic development during the early modern period (c. 1500 - 1860) and to link this data to existing Finnish National account series from 1860 to our days; 2) to use Finland as a case to study in more general level growth of late-industrialized countries; 3) to compare the Finnish development in broader European context.
