Total population

Gapminder Documentation 003 – version 3

Population is available in Gapminder World in the indicator “population, total”, which contains observations between 1700 to 2012. It is also available in the indicator “population, with projections”, which also includes projections up to 2100 as well as data for several countries before 1700.

The excel-file include all available observations, together with meta-data for each observation. In version1 of this data we also included “data quality” for each observation. The data quality indicator has not been updated, so it refers to the earlier version.
