Description

This raster dataset depicts the spatial distribution of residential population, expressed as the absolute number of inhabitants of the cell. Residential population estimates between 1975 and 2020 in 5-year intervals and projections to 2025 and 2030 derived from CIESIN GPWv4.11 were disaggregated from census or administrative units to grid cells, informed by the distribution, volume, and classification of built-up area as mapped in the global GHSL built-up surface layers per epoch.
