World Population Ageing 2007 is a CD-ROM with the Population Division’s new estimates of population by age and includes information for the major areas, regions, and countries of the world. The CD-ROM contains a set of Excel tables with the data and a methodological note that describes the procedures used to obtain the estimates.
The deliberations during the last session of the Commission on Population and Development held in April 2008 dedicated to the theme “Spatial Distribution of the Population, Urbanization, Internal Migration and Development” and the discussions of the Expert Group Meeting on the same theme held in New York in January 2008, highlighted the need for more detailed and systematic data on the urban and rural populations throughout the world. The new information presented here makes a significant contribution in this regard, and should be of value for research and policy analyses of the spatial distribution of the population and of the trends in urbanization and their relationships with development.
