Subject Using Census data to research village history
Colin Watt
November 28, 2007


Colin Watt has completed a detailed analysis of the victorian census data relating to the villages of Silsoe / Clophill. He explained his methodologies and gave an estimate of the time/resources needed to do the transcription and graphical analysis.

The results show the changes in distributions of age, gender, occupation.

This has proven to be an effective introduction to our parallel Sharnbrook project.
