Welcome to CEDAR
CEDAR is a unit at Umeå University with two subsections: the Demographic Data Base and CEDAR Research.
Together, CEDAR's subsections are striving towards the same goal: to support, strengthen and stimulate research on population and ageing. In order to reach this goal we are building population databases of the highest possible quality and make these available for researchers. We are also seeking to establish a creative and vigorous interdisciplinary research environment.
Symbiosis between infrastructure and research
The databases are developed and managed by the Demographic Data Base, a unit that has helped Umeå University get a leading position in the area of population history ever since the 1970's.
The research is in turn conducted within CEDAR Research, a research centre which gathers Swedish and international researchers from a variety of backgrounds – i.e. history, cultural geography, medicine and statistics.
