Abstract

This paper examines the relationship between demographic changes and maritime prosperity in eight prefectures on ChinaÕs coast during the Sung and Yuan dynasties, with ChÕŸan-chou as the focus of discussion. Three sets of rank-order data on demographic patterns and degrees of maritime prosperity in these prefectures were generated and subjected to a unique statisti- cal technique, dual scaling. The results contradict the widely held view that there was a positive correlation between demographic changes and maritime prosperity in early modern China in general and in the Sung-Yuan ChÕŸan-chou in particular. Cet article porte sur le rapport entre lՎ volution dŽ mographique et la prospŽ rite maritime des huit prŽ fectures c™ti res chinoises sous les dynasties de Song et de Yuan, avec ChÕŸan-chou comme le centre de notre analyse. Les trois ensembles de donnŽ es classiŽ Ž es sur la rŽ partition dŽ mographique et sur le niveau de prospŽrite maritime des dites prŽ fectures ont Ž tŽ con- stituŽs et puis soumis ˆ lÕunique technique statistique utilisŽ e—dual scaling. Les rŽsultats contredisent le point de vue rŽ pandu qui voit une corrŽ lation positive entre les changements dŽ mographiques et la prospŽrite maritime au dŽ but de lՎ re moderne chinoise en gŽ nŽ ral, et ˆ ChÕŸan-chou sous les dynasties Song et Yuan en particulier.
