The World Population Policies Database, last updated in 2015, provides comprehensive and up-to-date
information on the population policy situation and trends for all
Member States and non-member States of the United Nations. The database shows
the evolution of government views and policies with respect to population size
and growth, population age structure, fertility, reproductive health and family
planning, health and mortality, spatial distribution, and internal and
international migration within the context of demographic, social and economic
change. The Database is updated biennially by conducting a detailed
country-by-country review of national plans and strategies, programme reports,
legislative documents, official statements and various international,
Inter-governmental and non-governmental sources, as well as by using official
responses to the
United Nations Inquiry among Governments on Population and Development.
This web-interface for the Database allows users to run custom data
queries on population policies and selected demographic and socioeconomic indicators for all countries and
selected time points since the mid-1970s, create graphs and maps, and generate country profiles.
