Cormac Ó Gráda ()

Working Papers from College Dublin, Department of Political Economy-

Abstract: In this paper I will provide a quick overview of the available quantitative source on mortality and what has been done with them. I will then turn biefly to what one quantative, impressionistic source has to say about mortality. I wil then offer an econometric analysis of the famines's toll. The last parts will talk about the role of emigration and the issue of mortality by age and gender.
