Dates and Places of Birth and Death in the Biographical Dictionary of Republican China
This dataset contains the data on birth and death of the 589 historical figures in the Biographical Dictionary of Republican China. The file includes several tabs. The main data is located in the "data" tab. All the other tabs provide statistical analysis of the different variables included in the Data tab.
Except for the data on death that we supplemented — most of the figures in the BDRC were still alive when the book came out — the data reflect what is available in the BDRC. When we found additional or contradictory data, we added it in separate columns.
