This chapter introduces seven populations (1716–1912) used in the comparative studies of this volume: Scania in southern Sweden, Sart and Pays de Herve in eastern Belgium, Casalguidi in central Italy, Shimomoriya and Niita in northeastern Japan, and Liaoning and Shuangcheng in northeast China. We compare descriptively their socioeconomic and household characteristics, as well as nuptiality patterns, and describe data sources and the empirical design of the model. We illustrate how variables are constructed and present the statistical methods used.We also demonstrate the first hand results of the event history analysis of first marriage and further introduce questions which will be answered in the later chapters.

Keywords:   data sources, event history analysis, marriage pattern, household system, hazard model, discrete model, gender, socioeconomic status
