Historical demography - scientific research network
The WOG Historical Demography is a scientific research network financed by the Fund for Scientific Research Flanders. It is the aim of the research community to coordinate and stimulate both national and international cooperation in historical demographic and sociologic research on a postdoctoral level.
The Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute (NIDI) is a research institute of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) engaged in the scientific study of population (demography).
Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research
The Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR) in Rostock is one of the leading demographic research centers in the world. Researchers from all over the world investigate demographic change, aging, fertility, biological demography and other issues at the forefront of population research.
Demographic Data Base (DDB)
The Demographic Data Base (DDB) produces and makes population databases available for research. The primary sources digitized are parish registers from the 18th and 19th century, but also parish statistics from the period 1749-1859 have been recorded and made available in a database. These historical sources have a proven high quality and contain an amazing amount of information about the Swedish population, which is suitable for studies with a longitudinal and broad perspective. However, the DDB is not only working with historical material and producing databases with historical information. In close collaboration with Statistics Sweden DDB is developing a new infrastructure where historical data is being liked with modern population registers.
Institut national d'études démographiques (INED)
INED is a specialized research institute working in the field of population studies.INED's main mission is to study the national and international demographic situation and to analyse population trends. INED adopts a multidisciplinary approach, and its areas of expertise cover not only the study of purely demographic phenomena such as nuptiality, fertility, mortality and migration, but also demography applied to society, economics, public health, human geography, history and more. Alongside its mission of scientific research, INED is responsible for collecting and disseminating demographic information on France and the other countries of the world.
Family and Population Studies (FaPOS)
FaPOS has two main research domains: a historical and a contemporary one. In the historical track, the focus is on long-term, socio-demographic analysis (mainly 19th century), with particular attention to fertility, nuptiality, partner choice, migration and mortality. In the contemporary track, recent family structures and processes are being addressed from a sociological perspective. Here the focus is on divorce, repartnering, family formation and marriage-like relationships.
Center for Economic Demography (CED)
The Centre for Economic Demography (CED) includes more than thirty scholars active in the fields of economic history, economics, social medicine, social work and statistics who are involved in research on economic and social issues connected to demography, from modern as well as historic aspects and with international comparative perspectives.
The Finnish Centre of Excellence in Historical Research
