Swedish GDP data now back to 14th century

Published: 2017-02-17

Thanks to outstanding work by Olle Krantz, professor emeritus, we now can present data on Swedish GDP 1300-1560 in our WP-series.


The project started in 1984 by researchers at the Department of Economic History in Lund, especially Olle Krantz and Lennart Schön, and the series has been a flagship in economic history for many years.

Sweden is one of few countries in the world with GDP data available back to the 1300 's.
