- Demographic Profiles
- Probabilistic Projections

The demographic profiles display key demographic indicators for selected periods or dates between 1950-2100, for countries or areas with more than 90,000 inhabitants in 2015. In all figures, values for 1950-2015 are estimates and those thereafter are projections (medium variant).
