In honor of Jan Hoem
(1939–2017)

28 February 2017

With great sadness, we report the death of Prof. Jan Hoem on 25 Feb 2017.
Prof. Hoem made invaluable contributions to Demographic Research. Some are easily visible: he served as Editor-in-Chief during the journal's formative years, from 1999–2006, and authored or co-authored 17 articles in DR. His most important contributions, however, were behind the scenes. He was an important advocate for an innovative, open-access journal in demography, and he actively supported that mission. As co-director of MPIDR, he hired key journal staff members. He was also a valuable anonymous reviewer, whose incisive comments helped the authors of more than 60 papers to sharpen their arguments and improve their presentations. Prof. Hoem made many important contributions to demography, actuarial science, and applied statistics over his career. We remember and honor him especially as a founder and unwavering supporter of this journal.

- Carl Schmertmann, Editor
