Project description

LOKSTAT + is an extension of LOKSTAT, the database of local statistics in Belgium (1800-1970). LOKSTAT (developed at UGent) is a digital database of demographic, socio-economic and political-institutional statistics, available from 1800 for the entire Belgian territory, down to the municipal level. Whereas LOKSTAT was compiled on the basis of paper archives from the period 1800-1970 (the pre-computer era), LOKSTAT + focuses on the period 1960-1990 and obsolete computer data.
