New data available for research in SwedPop

NEWS The national infrastructure SwedPop has been extended with additional data.

The national infrastructure SwedPop, which coordinates data from five of Sweden's most important historical population databases, has made a new data release which means that individual-level population data from Stockholm, Arvidsjaur and Arjeplog are now available for research.

The Rotemannen database at Stockholm City Archives, which can now be downloaded for research at swedpop.se, covers parishes in the growing city of Stockholm from 1878 to 1926, including the incorporated parishes of Brännkyrka from 1913 and Bromma from 1916. The database consists of linked individual data that is harmonized, coded and fully adapted for academic research.

The new data release also includes individual-level longitudinal population data from the parishes of Arvidsjaur and Arjeplog in Norrbotten, digitized by the Demographic Database at Umeå University. This allows researchers to access individual data covering the population of the entire Skellefteå river valley from 1750 onwards, from Skellefteå on the coast up to Arjeplog near the Norwegian border.

Other improvements in the new data release include minor revisions of the occupational coding for SEDD data, and coding of causes of death according to the international classification ICD10h.
