that stands behind the events analyzed in this volume. It contains
three sections. The first, which includes Tables A1-A7, presents
historical data regarding the population: gender; age category;
labor-force, examined according to occupations and conflict; births
and marriages; various forms of criminality; important indicators
of the economy and public finance, such as domestic product and
