population statistics late 1800s

Postby gavilan » Thu Oct 12, 2006 12:54 pm

can anybody give me information/website so I can find population statistics for villages in the Malaga Province which were devasted by the phylloxera epidemic in 1885 (pueblos like Almachar, El Borge, Cutar, Benamargosa, Benamocarra, Iznate) ... have tried INE site but I cant seem to get back before 1900 ...

are you looking for population statistics to determine
how many people might have left the region after
the grape phylloxera aphid that lives in the rootstock of vines
devastated the vineyards of europe in 1885... ?

Resistance is futile, you will be assimilated into the collective

Yes, Nevada Smith, I was hoping that the pop stats for those villages would show how many people left following the filoxera disaster ... and the Malaga website does not include such figures

try www.ine.es ,the Spanish national statistics site. I don't know if it will have what you want, but loads of interesting info. You can look up registered population figures onthe padron of each yown hall, with breakdowns into nationalities, ages, and sex. quite an eye opener when you find villages with very few brits registered yet loads permanently living there!

I have tried ine historia section ... it quotes 6 different period 'yearbooks' eg 1866-1867 and gives me a long list of contents including 'population' but every time I click on the subject it just flicks back to the contents page! ?any suggestions?
and am waiting for Nevada Smith to show me up for being so dumb!

I managed to get into everything OK. The files are in PDF format and require Acrobat Reader, that may be your problem if you don't have Adobe.
Since I gave up hope I feel much better!

gavilan,
never intended to 'show you up'
merely wanted to know if you were looking for something more specific
than your original question reflected -
possibly aiding in the search...

have just been reading a PDF file using Acrobat Reader 'el sector primario andaluz en el siglo XX' .. which includes statistics re vine industry before and after filoxera .. graph on page 69 re Malaga says it all .. so I can find out what happened to the grapes/economy but not what happened to the people/workers!
the filoxera struck in the Axarquia Baja, Malaga Province in 1885 ... the villages most affected were those I listed in my first post ... so am looking for population figures before and after that year ... I know they must exist because I found similar figures in a book about the villages of the Sierras Tejeda and Almijara but those pueblos were not so badly affected as vines were not their only income/produce .. bad enough but not as devasting as where vines were the only source of income.
