Historical Demographics and Collaborative Data

Généalogie de Victor Hugo

A few month ago, I mentioned in a blog post that I had presented the beginnings of the work undertaken with Arthur Charpentier on historical demographics using collaborative data from a genealogy website, geneanet.org. I also reported on the progress of our research during some morning presentations with the members of the Actinfo Chair (see the blog post). Today, Arthur and I published a working paper on HAL untitled “Étude de la démographie française du XIXe siècle à partir de données collaboratives de généalogie” (French for “Nineteenth-century French demography from collaborative genealogy data”). The paper is written in French.

GEOMED 2017 conference in Porto (Portugal)

Porto 2017

This week I will attend the GEOMED2017 conference in Porto, in Portugal. Researchers from different horizons will be gathering here to attend to some talks about spatial statistics, spatial epidemiology and public health. This will be the perfect occasion for me to learn more on those subjects during the three days of the conferences. I will also attend a workshop given by Lee Duncan from Glasgow University on modelling spatial data in R with the package CARBayes).
