Time Period:  

  • 1950--1975

Universe:   201 nations and other political entities worldwide.

Data Types:   census/enumeration data

Data Collection Notes:

Some of the developing nations included in the study had few or no population censuses, and no vital registration systems providing coverage of births. Consequently, for some parts of the world, the figures presented are rough estimates based on censuses that were available, and on household sample surveys.

Methodology

Data Source:

population censuses, household sample surveys
