It includes a range of comparative, historical indicators for 22 OECD countries covering the period 1960-2010. The database is developed by Prof. Dr. A.H. Gauthier and distributed by the Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute (NIDI) and Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPlDR).
