Project Description

Summary:  View help for Summary These files include data and code used to create tables and figures for "Combining Family History and Machine Learning to Link Historical Records." This was published as an NBER Working Paper (#26227) and is in the review process at an academic journal. We are seeking permission to share our full dataset that we obtained from FamilySearch. We have included the truth set that we use to train our model along with the machine learning code we use to link records using this truth set. Our truth set includes histid pairs between the different census records, which can be combined with the restricted versions of the full-count census records that are distributed through the University of Minnesota.
