The programme's objective is to develop a database with about 40.000 individual life courses of people born in the period of 1863-1922. This database with micro-data will be supplemented with core data on the level of the municipalities. This will be done by digitalizing the results of the ten-yearly censuses as they were taken between 1859 and 1947.

The programme builds on work already carried out by the Historical Sample of the Population of the Netherlands (HSN) and the Data Archiving and Networked Services (DANS) for the digitised census data.
