Describing and explaining shifts in labour relations using a micro-macro approach

  1. 1. Describing and explaining shifts in labour relations using a micro-macro approach Richard Zijdeman and Rombert Stapel, DH Benelux 2014, The Hague
  2. 2. Global Collaboratory on the History of Labour Relations, 1500-2000 •  The relationship with the activity performed to foresee in ones subsistence •  E.g.: slave, self-employed, wage-earner 04/07/14 2 Shifts in labour relations using a micro-macro approach (DH Benelux 2014)

  5. 5. Status quo and current questions -  Collaboratory of researchers world wide -  Do labour relations change over time and differ between regions? -  How can we explain such shifts and spatial differences? Can we use digital sources to speed up answers on both questions? 04/07/14 5 Shifts in labour relations using a micro-macro approach (DH Benelux 2014)
  6. 6. Approach -  Digitized US census data (1850 – 2012) -  Source: IPUMS-USA -  Derive labour relations from occupations from census data -  Derive labour relation from additional ‘variables’ -  First steps in finding about regional and spatial shifts in labour relations 04/07/14 6 Shifts in labour relations using a micro-macro approach (DH Benelux 2014)
