MPIDR Databases with a New Look
Winter has now arrived here in Rostock on the Baltic coast. We have even had the first snow of the year. If you are cozy at home, take a look at our freely accessible demographic databases. Together with partner institutions worldwide, we maintain and expand collections on a wide variety of topics.
The largest and oldest database is the Human Mortality Database (HMD). It is the world's leading scientific data resource on mortality in high-income countries. Currently, the HMD provides detailed high-quality harmonized mortality and population estimates from 41 countries to researchers, students, journalists, policy analysts, and anyone interested in longevity.
Like the HMD, the Human Life-Table Database (HLD), the Human Fertility Database (HFD) and the COVerAGE Database are launched in a new, modern and user-friendly look. An overview of all databases can be found on our website.
Have fun discovering them.
Dear Colleagues and Friends of the Institute, we wish you a joyous end to the year and a happy 2023.
