Scientific Description
Mission and objectives
The HSN offers a representative sample of about 78,000 people born in the Netherlands during the period 1812-1922. The HSN-database containing individual life-courses is a unique tool for research in Dutch history and demography. The database has data on 85,000 sampled indivudals and 800,000 relatives.HSN activities can be divided into three categories: (1) projects aimed at enlarging the basic data file to cover the whole of the Netherlands (broadening); (2) projects extending the data on individuals by using new sources (deepening); (3) developing software and preserving the expertise in data gathering and research.
