Angus Maddison 1926 - 2010

Angus Maddison was a world scholar on quantitative macroeconomic history, including the measurement and analysis of economic growth and development. He was professor at the University of Groningen from 1978 to 1997, and a founder of the Groningen Growth and Development Centre. This website provides access to major parts of Angus' work as well as to new work that is being conducted in his spirit.

This website was kept up to date until Angus passed away in April 2010. It provides access to his latest writings and data series. The final update of the original dataset was in 2009.

The 'Maddison Project': in March 2010 the Maddison Project was launched by a group scholars with the aim to support an effective way of cooperation between scholars to continue Maddison's work on measuring economic performance for different regions, time periods and subtopics.
