Historical Studies are characterized by a high heterogeneity of the collected data. The historical sources of the studies can be both text documents (eg. Church documents), official statistics, and data of institutions (eg. the German ‘Reichsbank’).
This heterogeneity is reflected by the stored data of the historical studies. The data stock covers both detailed investigations with strongly focused space and time reference and studies which are very wide in their spatially and temporally design.
There are historical studies containing micro data (persons’ characteristics, raised from different archival ressources). On the other hand there are studies containing macro data (aggregate date, eg. election results or socio-economical characteristics related to the relevant space unit).
Our study collection currently comprises datafiles in various formats (Access- and MySQL-Databases, XLS-files, SPSS files eg.)
