From a database of births to a collaboratory. A reflection on twenty years of data collection and research with the hsn dataset
In 1989 the initiative of the Historical Sample of the Netherlands (hsn) was presented to the scientific community. We discuss the development of the database and we go into the question what kind of research the founders of the hsn had in mind and to what extent this has been realized the last twenty years. While doing this, we realize that the hsn does not operate in a vacuum but
stands in the centre of the scientific development. In this article we evaluate the 200 publications based on hsn-material which have appeared till now. We will discuss how new roads have been taken, especially in the fields of life course studies and studies of the family.
