Emigration and living standards in Ireland since the Famine
|Title:||Emigration and living standards in Ireland since the Famine||Authors:||O'Rourke, Kevin H.||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/1767||Date:||Nov-1994||Abstract:||Ireland experienced dramatic levels of emigration in the century following the Famine of 1845–1849. The paper surveys the recent cliometric literature on post-Famine emigration and its effects on Irish living standards. The conclusions are that the Famine played a significant role in unleashing the subsequent emigration; and that emigration was crucial for the impressive increase in Irish living standards which took place during the next 100 years.||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||University College Dublin.
