Access to Documents by Subject or Province

A. Access to selected statistical information is provided by Ann Hartness through the use of her Subject Guide to Statistics in the Presidential Reports of the Brazilian Provinces 1830-1889. Austin, TX: Institute of Latin American Studies, University of Texas at Austin, 1977. This Guide provides subject access to over 10,000 statistical references in these annual Provincial reports.

Each subject page provides access to data contained in the Provincial Presidential Reports. The information is organized by province, then by date, publication, and page. See below for annotations used within the guide.

Please note that only selected data has been indexed. Not all of the citations in the printed Subject Guide could be identified. In addition, some pages were missing from the originals or were of too poor quality to include in the digitized reports. Reports published between 1890 and 1930 were not included in the printed Subject Guide and are not indexed here.
