Title: Replication data for: Time-series, cross-sectional dataset on police jurisdictions in Tokyo, Japan from 1922 until 1933 (NEES-2013-1228)
Year Of Curation: 2014
Description: The purpose of this study, Time-series, cross-sectional dataset on police jurisdictions in Tokyo, Japan from 1922 until 1933, is to understand the conditions immediately before and after the 1923 Great Tokyo Earthquake. The earthquake took place on 1 September 1923 and killed at least 100,000 people (although some estimates range above 150,000). The dataset contains observations on approximately 40 police jurisdictions (defined by the police box, or koban) in the city of Tokyo covering the period from 1922 until 1933. Data was collected through archival research. Variables assessed over the 11 year period include area, population, earthquake damage and political gatherings along with various economic and social measures.
