Labrador and the Census

    Just arrived from the Labrador Institute - this important resource for anyone interested in the demographic history of Labrador. Labrador and the Census is the result of a project led by Morgan Mills, Program Coordinator at Memorial University’s Labrador Institute. For the first time, census data at the community level for Labrador has been brought together in one place, going back to 1857. The Centre for Newfoundland Studies which holds all census material in hard copy (some of which is now available through the Digital Archives initiative) was pleased to participate in this project. Recognizing that the census is the most basic and important data source that should be accessible to everyone, Mr. Mills has made the dataset freely available online.
