  1. This database is the culmination of an ongoing project that has its beginnings in the 1960’s. For over forty years, scholars have been collecting records of slave trading voyages from all across the Atlantic world. It was made possible by the contributions of academics working in archives across the world in many different languages. Approximately eighty percent of all voyages that disembarked slaves are available. What you need to know There are essays available on the sight detailing collection methods. Summary statistics are available. The database is searchable from the website based on twenty-five of the variables. The database includes which archive each voyage’s information came from. A codebook is available is a .pdf. The downloads available include estimate spreadsheets, The cleaned up voyages dataset that is the same as the searchable data on the website, and the full database. The estimates spreadsheet is available in .xlsx for Excel and .sav SPSS. The voyages dataset is available as a .sav for SPSS, a .dbf for database software, and .csv which can be used in most software packages that work with data. The full database is available as a .sav file for SPSS. To be able to use the full database outside of SPSS, you will have to convert the file to a different format.

Once you create a login, you can use it for all Minnesota Population Center projects. There is a user guide and FAQ section that can help with requesting data. Once you submit your request for data, it usually takes a few minutes for it to be compiled and made available. There are also some time series tables available, such as for population.
