The WorldPop Collection

High-quality data on human population distributions are required for a wide range of applications, from assessing the impacts of population growth to planning elections. This collection brings together a series of publications at Scientific Data describing datasets from WorldPop, an initiative that aims to provide detailed, open-access spatial demographic datasets using transparent approaches – focusing, in particular, on low and middle-income countries where high-quality data has historically been lacking.
