England's Population Growth 1086-1300

Hugo La Poutré , University of Groningen

This study presents a time series for England's population size in the twelfth and thirteenth century. As will be empirically underpinned, its population grew from 1.7 million people to as much as 6.5 million. This growth was not only limited to the augmentation of already existing settlements, but was also caused by the creation of many new settlements. New insights are gained by applying regression analysis to already existing datasets.
