New Maddison Project Database

The Maddison Project has launched an updated version of the original Maddison dataset in January 2013. The update incorporates much of the latest research in the field, and presents new estimates of economic growth in the world economic between AD 1 and 2010. The new estimates are presented and discussed in Bolt and Van Zanden (2013). The First Update of the Maddison Project; Re-Estimating Growth Before 1820, Maddison Project Working Paper 4.
