ABSTRACT
The article reports on the data collection being undertaken by a research project at Queen Mary and Westfield College regarding the history of labor markets in Great Britain during the 19th century. It as two main historical concerns, the origins of the North-South divide and the geographical distribution of labour protest in the past. The history of the North-South divide in Britain is usually traced back to the inter-war period, and explained in terms of the problems of structural adjustment to the collapse of the export-based industries after the First World War. This research is being funded principally by the Leverhulme Trust, which is supporting a research fellow and a data entry assistant for two years. The project is interested in labour market data, such as unemployment, wages, strikes, or numbers employed, but also need census statistics on population growth, etc.
