The Centre for Economic Demography (CED) gathers researchers from different areas of Lund University who share an interest in population issues from a social science perspective. The overarching aim of the research conducted at CED is to improve knowledge of various demographic outcomes from preindustrial times up to the present. Much of the research at CED is based on a life-course approach at the individual level. The centre also maintains and continuously develops high-quality research infrastructures to facilitate population research for CED members. The research is organized within six interrelated themed areas which share theoretical and methodological approaches. Most of our researchers are active in more than one of these areas. More detailed description of ongoing research can be found under each researcher.
