FRED Adds Historical Data on Textile Production in New England Mills

Curious about the textile industry in New England during the early to mid-1800s? FRED has added data on cotton production by yards for 25 different textile mills in New England between 1815 and 1860 and an aggregate series of the total production of these mills.

The data come from “The New England Textile Industry, 1825-60: Trends and Fluctuations” by Lance E. Davis and H. Louis Stettler III, a chapter in Output, Employment, and Productivity in the United States after 1800, edited by Dorothy S. Brady and published in 1966.
