About the product
In addition to the World Population Prospects, published every two years, the United Nations periodically prepares supplementary world population projections referred to as long-range projections. The Population Division has adopted two major innovations for this new set of long-range population projections based on the 2002 Revision. For the first time, the long-range projections are made at the national level, that is, for each of the 228 units constituting the world. In addition, the time horizon for the projections is extended to 2300. This volume presents the results of the long-range projections and includes a detailed analysis. A series of essays on the issue of long-range projections have also been incorporated in this report, enriching the debate on this important topic.
