World Migration Matrix, 1500-2000

Constructed by Louis Putterman and his colleagues.

See this page for details.

Used by Putterman and Weil (2010).

Michalopoulas (2012) "The Origins of Ethnolinguistic Diversity" uses this data to identify countries in which more than 40% of the current population can trace ancestry within the same country boundary back to 1500 AD, for which variation in agricultural suitability and elevation is found to be a strong predictor of ethnic diversity
