Research centre



INED is a research institute currently employing a permanent staff of 160 people, including some sixty researchers. Its vast domain covers demographic phenomena: nuptiality, fertility, mortality, spatial mobility (known as pure demographics), and demographics applied to social life, economics, public health, human geography, history, etc. The administrative structures of the Institute, the Board of Administration, the Scientific Council and the Evaluation Committee safeguard the imperative of independence in research while respecting the priorities established in collaboration with the French government.


The missions of INED are defined by a decree taken in March 1986. Article 1.- INED undertakes, develops and encourages, on its own initiative or at the request of the government, all forms of research on population issues; Article 2.- It evaluates, conducts or commissions all relevant research into population issues and all research contributing to the economic, social and cultural development of the country; Article 3.- It collects research data, centralizes and develops all research in France or abroad relevant to its field of activity, and keeps the government and public authorities informed of all knowledge acquired; Article 4.- It contributes to training in research and training through research in its different areas of expertise; Article 5.- It informs the public about demographic issues; Article 6.- It disseminates French demographic research internationally and develops demographic information while promoting the use of the French language.

Main research areas

INED is divided into 12 research units, each of which specialises in a particular domain. This research units correspond approximately to the notion of 'programme', in the sense that they contain a common theme or theme which groups together research projects over time. Although at the present time there is no 'Ageing Research Unit', two of the units clearly incorporate ageing research into their programmes INED approaches its research on ageing in the context of changing social policies concerning the family. It pays particular attention to the independence of women and the implications that this has for society. It recognises for example, that the increase in life expectancy and the drop in fertility pose new social questions. Principle themes include: • work on life expectancy and possible future scenarios. • Age and gender: developing new approaches to the study of the life course and ageing • Epidemiological study of the causes of death over long periods; link between social cause and mortality • Pensions, savings and intergenerational transfers
