We are very grateful to all our colleagues from various research and statistical institutions for their extensive support to the project. We also acknowledge the important contribution of the project co-founder and former project director Joshua R. Goldstein.

Institutional support

This project would not have been possible without the encouragement and financial support of the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR) in Rostock, Germany and the Vienna Institute of Demography (VID) in Vienna, Austria. The work of the VID team (Kryštof Zeman and Tomáš Sobotka) since February 2012 was funded by the European Research Council under the European Union´s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013)/ERC Grant agreement nº 284238 (EURREP project).

We express our gratitude to the Population Division at the United Nations Department of Economics and Social Affairs for the valuable suggestions and continuous cooperation on the project, in particular, to Ann Biddlecom, Vladimira Kantorova and Patrick Gerland.

We appreciate the support of the Institute National d’Etudes Demographiques (INED, Paris) in accessing and obtaining various fertility data in the library.

Individual contributors

The HFC project greatly relies on the network of statistical agencies, researchers, and other institutional and individual data holders that help us locate and access various data or who provide data themselves. We thankfully acknowledge all such contributions.

We are sincerely grateful to Jean-Paul Sardon (INED, Paris) for his valuable contribution of data from the ODE collection and general advice on the project.

We also thank Carl P. Schmertmann (Center for Demography and Population Health, Florida State University) for providing us with his original scripts for the CS estimator method and valuable advice.

Grateful thanks go to Everton E. C. Lima (University of Campinas - Population Studies Center, São Paulo), who is a collaborator of the HFC team and has been incredibly helpful in coordinating data collection in Latin American countries.
