HSNDB - databases for historical and contemporary research

29 May 2024 - 15:06

HSNDB is the collective name for the datasets containing Dutch individuals from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries with which more than 500 publications have been written on issues such as life histories, social mobility, infant mortality and longevity. Of these, the Historical Sample of the Netherlands (HSN) and LINKS are the most prominent.

All data from the HSNDB are available through Dataverse, although access to some data requires a Dataverse account or explicit permission. HSNDB data is used by the CBG: Center for Family History, the Central Bureau of Statistics, and the Electoral Council, among others.
