This report provides a comprehensive overview of key aspects of population policies and dynamics for 196 countries since the mid-1970s. Updated biennially, it documents changes in more than 40 aspects of Government views and policies related to population size and growth, population age structure, fertility, reproductive health and family planning, health and mortality, spatial distribution and internal migration, and international migration. The report also includes two-page country profiles, with the first page containing information on changes in the Government views and policies and the second page containing data on selected population indicators corresponding to the timing of three major international population conferences from mid-1970s to mid-1990s and for 2011, the most recent revision year.
