In responding to a Swords & Wizardry forum post seeking input on a proposed character background profession generator, I looked around a little bit for some information on the web about medieval demographics and found two interesting sites I thought I'd share here. "Medieval Demographics Made Easy" by S. John Ross seems to be a well researched exploration of the subject, with some specific examples that nicely put things into perspective. Brandon Blackmoor took the data and put it into an interactive web page where you can easily break down your own fantasy campaign setting's numbers.
I've read some good blog posts on the subject of economics in folks' campaigns, and these new resources sync nicely with them.
What information sources or general inspiration have you used in determining your campaign's demographics?
