R (French) conferences 2018

Fifa World Cup 2018

Since Wednesday, I have been attending the 7th R (French) conferences, in Rennes, at Agrocampus Ouest.

On this occasion, before lunch, I will present our paper (working paper) co-authored with Arthur Charpentier on the use of collaborative genealogy data in historical demography. The presentation is a lightning talk: 14 slides that scroll every 24 seconds.

The slides are online (in French), and recall that the R codes are available on GitHub.

Historical Demographics and Collaborative Data

Généalogie de Victor Hugo

A few month ago, I mentioned in a blog post that I had presented the beginnings of the work undertaken with Arthur Charpentier on historical demographics using collaborative data from a genealogy website, geneanet.org. I also reported on the progress of our research during some morning presentations with the members of the Actinfo Chair (see the blog post). Today, Arthur and I published a working paper on HAL untitled “Étude de la démographie française du XIXe siècle à partir de données collaboratives de généalogie” (French for “Nineteenth-century French demography from collaborative genealogy data”). The paper is written in French.
