  1. The match rate represents the percent of geocoded person-years. Persons represents the number of individuals who have lived within the specified parish.
  2. *The land reforms had not been conducted in Sireköpinge for the period 1813–1848. The individuals can be geocoded on the address level with the given match rate because most individuals lived within the village and did not live in their property units.
  3. The total number of individuals in this dataset for the period 1813–1914 is approximately 45,000, which is less than the 53,000 individuals mentioned in ref. 7. The reason is that the latter number includes all individuals with at least one event registered, whereas the former and publicly open dataset excluded individuals with only one event registered (individuals with only a birth, a death or a migration registered).
  4. These match rates are low because some of the land reforms had not been implemented in this period. Thus, people still lived within the villages and cultivated nearby scattered plots.
