Welcome to the Centre for Demographic and Ageing Research
From April 1st 2015, a new unit sees the light of day at Umeå University: the Centre for Demographic and Ageing Research (CEDAR). The Demographic Data Base is one part of this new entity, while former CPS is another.
An entirely new web page is currently being built, but in the meantime we welcome our visitors here – to the old DDB web.
So what is demography? Demography is the statistical study of the population, its size, distribution and change.
At the Demographic Data Base (DDB) we focuse on two main areas: data production and research. Data production includes input, filing and systematizing information from historical parish registers and parish statistics in Sweden. The research activities include research, as well as method development, service for researchers, provision of research posts, seminars and conferences etcetera.
