Originator: Charles W. Calomiris and Jonathan B. Pritchett
These data were collected from the office of the Orleans parish Civil Clerk of Court. The sample includes all slave sales recorded by the register of conveyance from October 1856 to August 1861. The construction of the dataset is similar to that employed previously by Fogel and Engerman (1976). The unit of observation is the individual with the exception of children who were bundled with their mothers.
