European Science Foundation (ESF)
The European Science Foundation (ESF) provides a platform for its Member Organisations to advance science and explore new directions for research at the European level. Established in 1974 as an independent non-governmental organisation, the ESF currently serves 78 Member Organisations across 30 countries.
International Committee for Historical Demography
For a general overview of databases see the website of the International Committee for Historical Demography (ICHD). The ICHD associates scientists of different nationalities, whose aim is to encourage the study of the history of population and of human society in general, and to further scientific exchange between researchers.
International Microdata Access Group (IMAG)
The International Microdata Access Group (IMAG) was formed to foster the international collaboration of researchers who work with historical and contemporary microdata in order to facilitate transnational comparative research.
ICPSR provides leadership and training in data access, curation, and methods of analysis for a diverse and expanding social science research community.
European Society of Historical Demography (ESHD)
This society is established to foster the co-operation between scholars engaged or interested in historical demography studies in Europe, and stimulate interest in population matters in the European Union scientific programmes and agencies as well as among governments, national and international organizations, and the general public.
Association for Young Historical Demographers
The goal of the Association for Young Historical Demographers is to bring together junior scholars who investigate historical demographic processes. Young does therefore not refer to age, but more to a stage in one’s academic career. We especially welcome BA-students, MA-students, PhD-students, post-docs and other junior researchers to join this group. By offering a platform on which young historical demographers get the opportunity to exchange questions, ideas and their experience, we hope to strengthen the field of historical demography. Moreover, we hope this association will guarantee us having our own voice in the international community of Historical Demography.
Minnesota Population Center (MPC)
The MPC is one of the world's leading developers of demographic data resources. We provide population data to thousands of researchers, policymakers, teachers, and students. All MPC data are available free over the internet.
The Mosaic project identifies, gathers, harmonizes, and distributes surviving historical census microdata for Europe and beyond. It aims at building a comprehensive and detailed resource for the historic study of populations by historians, demographers, economists, and other researchers.
The Research Group on Demographic Dynamics is part of the Research Line Sociodemographic Changes on a Global World which is part of the Institute of Economy, Geography and Demography at the Spanish Council for Scientific Research. The Research Group, which includes at the moment 6 Senior researchers and 14 PhD and Postdoctoral Students, carry out their research on demographic related subjects, including a wide range of studies, from fertility to migration, including health of populations and mortality.
