European Historical Population Samples Network

The European Historical Population Samples Network (EHPS-Net) brings together scholars to create a common format for databases containing non-aggregated information on persons, families and households. This format or Intermediate Data Structure (IDS) aims to form an integrated and joint interface between many European databases in order to transcend the currently regional and national studies.


EHPS-Net started in June 2011 and is an ESF Research Networking Programme.
