Population estimates, while often arbitrary, merit close attention. While the estimates, often amounting to mere guess-work, reflect belief in what was happening in economic society, once formed they are frequently employed to give hard edges to economic and social phenomena described by historians. They are by no means independent data which may corroborate conclusions arrived at from other sources.
