Measurement and History

The Measurement and History Project was active between 2014 and 2018. Its work resulted in the publication of special issue on the topic in the journal History of Political Economy in 2020.

The Measurement and History project was concerned with the history of measurements, especially of inequality, and with the uses of these measurements in different historical periods. It was supported by the Philomathia Foundation's Social Sciences Research Programme and the Centre for History & Economics.

The project was coordinated by Pedro Ramos Pinto and Poornima Paidipaty.
