Participants at the July 2019 workshop at Central China Normal University to introduce the CGED-Q Jinshenlu Public Release

We held a workshop on July 20-22 at Central China Normal University to introduce the China Government Employee Database-Qing (CGED-Q) Jinshenlu 1900-1912 public release. The workshop was co-organized by the Renmin University Institute of Qing History, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology Division of Social Science, and Central China Normal University, and the local organizer was the Central China Normal University School of History and Culture. Faculty and students from HKUST, Renmin University, Central China Normal University and other institutions made presentations introducing the public release and other major databases, providing examples of applications, and explaining how to load the data into major statistical packages. The participants included 34 postgraduate students from a variety of institutions in the mainland and elsewhere, a number of guests from Central China Normal University and other institutions in Wuhan. The program is below.

Updated version of CGED-Q 1900-1912 Jinshenlu Public Release available for download

We prepared a new version of the CGED-Q 1900-1912 Jinshenlu Public Release that removes leading and trailing blank spaces from all fields. The blank spaces were introduced during the data entry process and are unnecessary. Users previously had to remove them with the trim command in STATA or the equivalent in R or whatever other package they were using.

We have also prepared a version of the release where all the column headings/variables names are in pinyin rather than Chinese characters. We learned that R and possibly some other packages have trouble with Unicode variable names.

The files are available at the usual download sites.
