Launch of the Maddison Project Database13-02-2013 07:52
A group of pupils and colleagues of Maddison therefore decided, after his passing away in 2010, to continue his work, and established the 'Maddison project' for that purpose
Their work has now resulted in an update of the dataset, which incorporates much of the latest research in this field, and presents new estimates - based on Maddison's methodology - of economic growth in the world economic between AD1 and 2010. The new estimates are presented and discussed in Bolt and Van Zanden (The First Update of the Maddison Project; Re-Estimating Growth Before1820 http://www.ggdc.net/maddison/publications/wp.htm)
The new data are available on: http://www.ggdc.net/maddison/
The original Maddison estimates remain available on his personal website
(http://www.ggdc.net/MADDISON/oriindex.htm) that also contains many publications and other info about his life and work.
