Monash University: New ARC-funded research project set to put death in its place

Monash University: New ARC-funded research project set to put death in its place. “The project, Putting Death In Its Place, in collaboration with Libraries Tasmania, will link individuals and their families to the locations where they were born, lived and died, using over 890,000 Tasmania population records from 1838 to 1930. Using innovative matching techniques and Tasmania‚Äôs wealth of digital archives, the project is the first of its kind in Australia to link a data set of this size to a reconstructed historic landscape. It aims to assess the influence that the quality and location of housing and public infrastructure had on life expectancy and other health and social outcomes.”
