  • 4. Latin American Mortality Database (LAMBdA)

    The Latin American Mortality Database (LAMBdA) is a project at the University of Wisconsin-Madison that is directed by Dr. Alberto Palloni of the Department of Sociology. Originally created to support the empirical study of the history of mortality trends in Latin American countries after independence, LAMBdA now supports the study of very recent mortality trends and is particularly suited for the study of old age mortality during the post-WWII period. The database covers the interval between 1848 and 2014, it includes population censuses, age-specific (five year and single year age groups) total death counts (starting in 1900), and by causes of deaths (starting in 1945). It contains over 170 years of data, including adjusted life tables and a total of about 500 life tables. Adjustments are of two types: (a) for relative completeness of death counts and (b) for adult age misstatement. The adjustment procedures were chosen from a battery of 10-12 techniques that proved to be optimal (in the sense of mean squared error reduction) in extensive simulations that reproduced known or suspected sources of errors in the data. These adjustments are applied consistently across countries and years of observation. The resulting data are optimized for intertemporal and intercountry comparability. Please read the overview and the methods section for more details about the adjustments and the data. The Latin American Mortality Database is provided free of charge to all individuals who register to the site. Please do not pass your copy of these data to other users; instead, refer them to the LAMDBdA website where they can download the data for themselves. The database will continue to be updated and augmented with new data and products that will enhance the continuous study of mortality in these countries. The project is supported by research project grants from the National Institute

  • 6. Confidential Print: Latin America

    The Confidential Print series, issued by the British Government between c. 1820 and 1970, is a fundamental building block for political, social and economic research. The series originated out of a need to preserve the most important papers generated by the Foreign and Colonial Offices. These range from single-page letters or telegrams to comprehensive dispatches, investigative reports and texts of treaties. All items marked 'Confidential Print' were printed and circulated immediately to leading officials in the Foreign Office, to the Cabinet and to heads of British missions abroad. This collection consists of the Confidential Print for Central and South America and the French- and Spanish-speaking Caribbean. Topics covered include slavery and the slave trade, immigration, relations with indigenous peoples, wars and territorial disputes, the fall of the Brazilian monarchy, British business and financial interests, industrial development, the building of the Panama Canal, and the rise to power of rulers such as Perón in Argentina and Vargas in Brazil.
