notes For the crisis years, the number of burials comes from the individual year of a settlement with the highest increase in the specific crisis period. For urban-rural and total, the number of burials comes from all of the years in the seventeenth century with burial data, crisis or not, including extra settlements with burial data but none for crisis periods.

sources All of the source material for the seventeenth-century burials database is listed in Appendix 1, available at https://uu.academia.edu/DanielCurtis.
