About the product

This volume presents the analytical report for the World Population Prospects: The 1998 Revision, the official world population estimates and projections for each of the 184 countries or areas. The figures represent a unique set of comprehensive, consistent and internationally comparable estimates and projections of population by age and sex as well as age and sex patterns of mortality, fertility and migration. Estimates and projections are made and presented for each country separately. The estimates cover the period 1950-1995 and the projections the period 1995-2050. Results are also presented in terms of the world as a whole, its 21 regions and five major areas. In addition, countries are organized by level of development. The Analytical Report is the third volume of a three-volume set; the earlier two published volumes provide the comprehensive tables and the sex and age distribution of the population of all countries of the world.
