From 1285 to 1600, Italian bonds are used. Data are available for the Prestiti of Venice from 1285 to 1303 and from 1408 to 1500 while data from 1304 to 1407 use the Consolidated Bonds of Genoa and the Juros of Italy from 1520 to 1598.

General Government Bonds from the Netherlands are used from 1606 to 1699.

Yields from Britain are used from 1700 to 1914, using yields on Million Bank stock (which invested in government securities), from 1700 to 1728 and British Consols from 1729 to 1918.
