Slave Movement During the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries

This site from the Data and Program Library Service (DPLS) at the University of Wisconsin provides access to the raw data and documentation which contains information on a variety of slave trade topics from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, including records of slave ship movement between Africa and the Americas, slave ships of eighteenth-century France, slave trade to Rio de Janeiro, Virginia slave trade in the eighteenth century, English slave trade (House of Lords Survey), Angola slave trade in the eighteenth century, internal slave trade to Rio de Janeiro, slave trade to Havana, Cuba, Nantes slave trade in the eighteenth century, and slave trade to Jamaica. The data are presented in a variety of formats and can be downloaded as .zip files. A codebook is provided, but the DPLS cautions that analysis of the data by hand is tedious and time-consuming. In short, the data here are for serious academic researchers with the appropriate software. A no-fee registration is also required. For more information on the DPLS, see the March 5, 1997 Scout Report.
