The goal of this project is to measure, analyze, and explain variations in spatial inequality in Europe during two major periods of profound socio-economic and political change. The first being the years of industrialization spanning the second half of the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth century. The second is the period of post-industrialization since the 1970s. The project centers on an original time-series data set of infant mortality covering hundreds of county-level units across more than 30 countries.
