Data 101: Designed for New Users

The Early Indicators project constructs life histories of a sample of Civil War recruits through the use of more than 15,000 variables on each recruit. Data 101 provides a subset of the best and most user friendly variables for popular research topics.

Each Data 101 guide is accompanied by Stata and Excel files for each EI population sample accompanied by documentation. Visit the Sample Overview page to learn about the different EI population samples.
