Irish income tax returns as a source for GDP estimates for Ireland, 1853-1914

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Since 1994 the Irish Quantitative History Group, formerly known as the
    Historical National Accounts Group for Ireland (HNAG), meeting regularly in
    the Economic and Social Research Institute, Dublin, has been working towards
    developing a comprehensive set of statistics on Irish economic growth between
    the Famine and the First World War. In this symposium three participants
    provide an interim report on the progress of the group’s work to date, and on
    some of the technical issues it has encountered.
