Day for Young Historical Demographers

More than 40 young (historical) demographers participated by giving oral and poster presentations or by attending the workshops by Vlad Popovici and Petr Tureček on how to deal with historical demographic sources and databases. These teaching materials are already on- line so if you were not able to attend, you can still go through them and get some useful advice on histor- ical databases and how to work with R. In addition, Michel Oris, George Alter and Tomas Sobotka each gave very interesting key-notes which provided an excellent overview of why (historical) demographic research matters, particularly when looking at fertility. Overall, it – just like the 10th Conference for Young Demographers – was a great success.
