The Center for Economic Demography and Department of Economic History at Lund University will host a two-week intensive course on Living Conditions and Demographic Change in Pre-Industrial Societies from September 2-12, 2019.

This advanced course in economic demography equips students with sources and methods for analysing living standards in the past. Using event-history analysis and combining longitudinal individual level demographic data with information on socioeconomic factors at household level, and macro data on food prices, wages, temperature, and rainfall, we investigate short and long-term economic stress and early life exposures on later life outcomes as well as intergenerational social and biological transfers.
