Nature: A cross-verified database of notable people, 3500BC-2018AD

Nature: A cross-verified database of notable people, 3500BC-2018AD. “Our strategy results in a cross-verified database of 2.29 million individuals (an elite of 1/43,000 of human being having ever lived), including a third who are not present in the English edition of Wikipedia. Data collection is driven by specific social science questions on gender, economic growth, urban and cultural development. We document an Anglo-Saxon bias present in the English edition of Wikipedia, and document when it matters and when not.”
