Scope of Study
Subject Terms: military records
Date of Collection:
Universe: Horses procured by the Habsburg Military.
Data Types: administrative records data
Data Collection Notes:
(1) Variables 'anmerkun' and 'heft' were removed from the dataset and appended to the codebook as separate text files. (2) A unique record identifier ('ID') was created to match dataset cases with appended text files. (3) While missing data codes were standardized for numeric variables 'enliyear', 'regiment', 'karton', and 'age_at_p', missing data for string variables 'gender' and 'marks' remain as blanks.
Sample: Random sampling was used.
