Historical Demography

CED has a long tradition of research in historical demography. It deals with the major demographic changes that took place as the modern society developed, such as the change from high to low levels of mortality and fertility, and new patterns of union formation and household structure. Much of the research takes a micro-level approach and is based on the Scanian-Economic Demographic Database (SEDD), which is developed and maintained by CED.
