UN DESA World Population Prospects

The UN publishes global population projections and estimates every two years from 1951 using current population by age, and age-specific rates of fertility, mortality and migration to assess hypothetical population trends and to help understand determinants of population change and inform policy discussions. This is prepared by the Population Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations Secretariat. The main results are presented in a series of Excel files displaying key demographic indicators for each development group, income group, major area, region and country for selected periods or dates within 1950-2100.
