This is the first comprehensive account of the country's population developing in the centuries before and during the demographic transition. Based on both macro-sources and a multitude of computerised micro-sources and by using advanced demographic methods insights in the development of nuptuality, fertility and mortality has been achieved. The results are analysed on the background of economic and social changes in Danish society and demonstrate an early decline in mortality from around 1775, whereas a high level of fertility was a characteristic feature until very late in the nineteenth century.
