Abstract

The complete-count census data sets for the North Atlantic Population Project (NAPP) in the nineteenth century make it possible to analyze migration using maps, which can help scholars understand the impact of social and economic change on places where people live and work. In this article, the authors show both the benefits and limitations of incorporating maps into migration research by using NAPP data.
