SUNDEM contributions at IUSSP population conference in Korea

SUNDEM and Swedish register-based research was strongly represented at the IUSSP International Population Conference, which took place in Busan, Korea, from August 26 to August 31, 2013. Swedish researchers presented a wide range of register-based studies, which attracted great attention from the international audience. SUNDEM’s participation at the conference ended in high profile, as the closing ceremony was marked by Gunnar Andersson’s reception of the 2013 IUSSP-Mattei Dogan Foundation Award for Comparative Research in Demography and a short speech with contributions from register-based research by Gunnar. Below is a list of papers, with links to abstracts, presented by SUNDEM’s researchers.
