Gridded Population of the World
Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_GPW

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Demographic information is often provided on a national basis, but global
environmental and other cross-disciplinary studies usually require data that
are referenced by geographic coordinates, such as latitude and longitude,
rather than by political or administrative units. In this Gridded Population of
the World (GPW) data set, the distribution of human population is converted
from national or subnational units to a series of georeferenced quadrilateral
grids.


Version 3 is in beta testing.
