Princeton European Fertility Project:
List of Countries in Thirty-Year File

The following list shows all of the countries contained in the Thirty-Year data file. Data are included for each country at four points in time. The points in time are intended to be 1870, 1900, 1930 and 1960. For a particular country, the actual points in time may be different from these. The actual dates used are not coded in the data, but may be seen in the following list. In a few cases, the same year of data is used twice to represent two points in time.

Where boundary changes mandate, data from more than series are included; each country then appears multiple times in the data, with each series contributing one or more of the years of data. When a country is represented by more than one series, the data for years other than the years available for that series are zeros.

For every country, the first record in the series (area number 0) represents the entire country. This record is followed by a varying number of records for each of the constituent areas for that country and series. The number of areas for a series is in the same as in the Master File, except that areas representing alternative boundaries or aggregations of other areas were omitted from the Thirty-Year file. In the Thirty-Year file, there is only one record for each area, containing the fertility indices for four points in time. There are also no separate records for urban and rural areas in the Thirty-Year file. A few countries in the following list are not subdivided into areas: Luxemburg, Albania, and Iceland. These still have a total area (area 0) record and one regional area (area 1) record, which are identical.

The names given in the list are exactly as they appear in the data. The number preceding the country name is the country code found in columns 1-2 of both the Master File and the Thirty-Year File. Following the name of the country and the series used, are the total number of areas found in the data (including the area representing the whole country) and the actual dates used for that country and series.
