Real wages (piece rates) for women in Canada, 1764 to 1826

I have recently shared my job market paper (which I have submitted to the Journal of Economic History) where we can see real wages in Canada up to 1760. Obviously, I am not satisfied with studying male wages up to 1760, I want to extend to female wages and move beyond 1760.  Using the same sources, I have extended the data up to 1826. At present, the collection is partial, but I have some information about piece rate work for women. The trend confirms, although I am cautious at present, the general claim advanced by Gilles Paquet and Jean-Pierre Wallot that growth was positive.

I am sharing this graph just for readers to see what I am working on.
