About the product

The 2008 Revision builds on the 2006 Revision, and incorporates the results of both the 2000 round of national population censuses and the recent specialized surveys carried around the world. Those sources provide both the demographic and other information needed to assess the progress made in achieving the internationally agreed development goals, including the Millennium Development Goals. The comprehensive review of past worldwide demographic trends and future prospects presented in the 2008 Revision provides the population-related basis for the assessment of those goals.
