Abstract
These data were gathered to test a public choice interest group model integrating concentrated and deconcentrated interests with successful lobbying. Data on hundreds of occupations, gathered from commercial directories and court directories for 19th century British cities and towns, were grouped into 15 categories: professional aligned with manufacturing, professional aligned with land, nonaligned professional, manufacturing serving export of light goods, manufacturing serving export of heavy goods, manufacturing serving the domestic market as well as foreign markets, manufacturing serving the domestic market, manufacturing of farm equipment, farming, agricultural agents serving the domestic market as well as foreign markets, agriculture retailers and wholesalers serving the domestic market, other retail/specialty trades/service sector, fishing and shipping, aristocracy/landowners/gentry/titled men of independent means, and military service. Additional information in the dataset include total subscriptions to the Anti-Corn League (in pounds sterling), total city population, number of widows and spinsters, and various derived measures, e.g., export-oriented manufacturers and professionals aligned with manufacturing as a percentage of total occupations.Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR06423.v1
