Abstract
  • This file is the training set that was used to train an algorithm to identify Jim Crow laws. It contains laws that are labeled as "Jim Crow" (jim_crow=1) or "Not Jim Crow" (jim_crow=0). The source of the determination is also provided.
Methodology
  • The training set was created by using multiple sources: [1] Murray, Pauli. 1951. States’ Laws on Race and Color: And Appendices Containing International Documents, Federal Laws and Regulations, Local Ordinances and Charts. Cincinnati: Woman’s Division of Christian Service, Board of Missions and Church Extension, Methodist Church. [2] Paschal, Richard. 2020. Jim Crow in North Carolina The Legislative Program from 1865 to 1920. Durham: Carolina Academic Press. [3] A random sample of North Carolina laws enacted between 1866-1967 were assessed by scholars William Sturkey and Kimber Thomas to be either "Jim Crow" or "Not Jim Crow". [4] Team member James Dick reviewed the laws for consistency between the scholars' assessments.
