This database is a transcription of the original Tafel-Vbis source for the year 1921. Tafel V-bis is the name of a specific ledger in the Dutch inheritance tax administration which lists all of the deceased people in the Netherlands for whom a death duty (inheritance tax declaration named Memorie van Successie) was drawn up. This dataset was compiled from all remaining Tafel-Vbis ledgers across the Netherlands. It lists basic information about the people who were taxed, such as: name, place of birth, residence, marital status, and net wealth. It gives a reference to the corresponding death duty (memorie van successie). It also contains a number of people who were investigated whether tax should be payed, but were not taxed. More information about the dataset can be found in the readme.txt and accompanying data paper.
