The Standard of Living in Denmark in the Eighteenth and Early Nineteenth Centuries
Traditional measures of real wages cover only the standard of living of a small fraction of the Danish population in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries and due to constant wages over long periods the measures reflect primarily price changes. Mortality statistics can also be used to measure changes in the standard of living—both in the short and the long run until about 1840. Human stature of the Danish population shows relatively constant average heights from 1789 to the 1850s.
