    Advanced ages at death in Sápmi during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries: with special attention to longevity among the Sami population2016In: Historical Methods, ISSN 0161-5440, E-ISSN 1940-1906, Vol. 49, no 1, p. 34-49Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines advanced ages at death in a historical population in northern Sweden between 1780 and 1900. The source material used is a set of data files from the Demographic Data Base (DDB) at Umeå University supplemented with the search tool Indiko. The belief that the Sami died at very high ages was tested, and life tables and values of remaining life expectancies at older ages were calculated. The information of the age at death was analysed using a model containing four levels of certainty. The analysis reveals that the Sami did not live to extreme ages. The analysis also reveals large differences between the parishes concerning extreme longevity and correctness of age at death.

    Testing Methods of Record Linkage on Swedish Censuses2014In: Historical Methods, ISSN 0161-5440, E-ISSN 1940-1906, Vol. 47, no 3, p. 138-151Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research benefits a great deal when different kinds of registers can be combined. Record linkage is an important tool for connecting sources to create longitudinal databases of individual data. In this article, researchers test and evaluate different methods of record linkage used when linking two censuses. By comparing the results of the census linkage with other continuous Swedish parish registers, they find that applying constructed name variables and household links considerably increases the success rate without the risk of introducing bias. Missing links are mainly related to name problems, and appear most frequently among children and when the family structure has changed between the censuses. Faulty links are very few and must be regarded as only a marginal problem for analysis. The study underlines the importance of adapting the linkage process to the special characteristics of the sources.
