The Demographic Data Base at Umea University, Sweden, has been in existence for over ten years now. A file dedicated to the study of individuals over time has recently been made available for research; a copy of this data is now at IIASA.

The file consists of individual life event histories for women in seven different parishes in Sweden in the nineteenth century. Here, the author merely presents some very elementary analyses of the data concerning migration, and fertility, as a guide for future research. He also suggests that the data will be of considerable value in the study of heterogeneity in fecundability, a topic generating widespread publicity.
