  3. Population growth in a stabler Mexico

    Between 1800 and 1900, the Mexican population grew from roughly 6 million to 13.6 million. The USA, however, grew its population from 5.3 million to an enormous 76.2 million. I assume this is a result of instability and lower levels of migration, and my (admittedly brief) research seems to...

    How big would the Black Population be in a surviving CSA?

    I've been in the school of thought that if the CSA survived the majority of it's population would end up being black because a few states were already majority black including Florida surprisingly and neither of the Great Migrations would happen.

  10. A Demographic Exercise: ATL POD's effect on Chinese population

    Hello, all it appeared to me that if the violence and conflict China went through in the late 19th and early 20th century could have been ameliorated, may have led to a different level of population at its present. The Qing dynasty was pretty stable in terms of food distribution, at least until...
  11. With a POD of 1700, what is the maximum French population possible in 1800 and in 1900?

    1. With modern French borders, 2. With France having the Rhineland. And here's an interesting thought, if the max population France could have in 1800 is notably larger than OTL, then what would the population of 1900 France be in that scenario using growth calculations based on the 1800 number?
