Country-Level Population and Downscaled Projections Based on the SRES A1, B1, and A2 Scenarios, 1990-2100Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_SDP_CPOP_A1B1A2
Abstract: The Country-Level Population and Downscaled Projections Based on Special Report on Emissions Scenarios (SRES) A1, B1, and A2 Scenarios, 1990-2100, were adopted in 2000 from population projections realized at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in 1996. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) SRES A1 and B1 scenarios both used the same IIASA "rapid" ... fertility transition projection, which assumes low fertility and low mortality rates. The SRES A2 scenario used a corresponding IIASA "slow" fertility transition projection (high fertility and high mortality rates). Both IIASA low and high projections are performed for 13 world regions including North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, China and Centrally Planned Asia, Pacific Asia, Pacific OECD, Central Asia, Middle East, South Asia, Eastern Europe, European part of the former Soviet Union, Western Europe, Latin America, and North America. This dataset is produced and distributed by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).
The data in Microsoft Excel (XLS) and Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) formats are available from the NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC).
Purpose: To provide data on country-level population and downscaled projections based on the SRES A1, B1, and A2 marker scenarios.
