Demographic Research

Demographic Research is a free, online, open-access, peer-reviewed journal of the population sciences published by the MPIDR. It seeks to publish top-quality demographic research and related material from the full range of disciplines that address issues of demography, including the social sciences, the life sciences, mathematics and statistics, policy research, and research on the discipline itself.

Rostock Center for the Study of Demographic Change

The Rostock Center for the Study of Demographic Change is an institution operated jointly by the University of Rostock and the MPIDR. The Center investigates the causes and consequences of demographic change in Germany and Europe. It applies an interdisciplinary approach to supporting practical research in this field, and seeks to provide answers to questions of social and political relevance.

Population Europe

Population Europe is a collaborative network of Europe's leading demographic research centers. The goal of the network is to mobilize Europe’s best demographic researchers to coordinate and strengthen collaborative research efforts, and to contribute reliable facts and findings to public discussions of population issues in a research-driven and evidence-based way.

International Max Planck Research School for Population, Health and Data Science

The International Max Planck Research School for Population, Health and Data Science (IMPRS-PHDS) is a new and unique three-year doctoral program that merges demography, epidemiology and data science. The PHDS school equips doctoral students not only with advanced knowledge of the theory and methods of demography and epidemiology, but also with strong technical skills in statistics, mathematical modeling, and computational and data management methods.

European Doctoral School of Demography

The European Doctoral School of Demography (EDSD) is an 11-month program open to students with a master's degree, and who are enrolled in the first year of a European PhD program. Students acquire a solid knowledge base on the causes and consequences of demographic change, population data, statistical and mathematical demography, modeling, simulation, and forecasting.

Demografische Forschung Aus Erster Hand

Demografische Forschung Aus Erster Hand is a joint publication of the MPIDR, the Vienna Institute of Demography, and the Rostocker Zentrum zur Erforschung des Demografischen Wandels. The aim of the newsletter is to intensify the dialogue between research and the public. The newsletter is released four times a year, is free of charge, and is available in digital or printed form.

The Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR) in Rostock is one of the leading demographic research centers in the world. It's part of the Max Planck Society, the internationally renowned German research society.
