Welcome to SUDA,
the Stockholm University Demography Unit*
SUDA is part of the Department of Sociology, offering training in demography through individual courses, multi-disciplinary one- and two-year master’s degrees, and a doctoral degree in sociological demography.
These programs are the only comprehensive demographic training in Sweden and are well connected with research schools throughout the world.
Our research concentrates on family dynamics – childbearing, partnerships, households – and the cultural, social, economic, and political conditions that underlie them. Most of the work we do is comparative, engaging data from countries throughout Europe and the rest of the world. We are particularly interested in the effects of social policy, gender relationships and attitudes or values on demographic behavior.
