New data sets from the NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (
<http://sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu/>) operated by CIESIN
Gridded Population of the World (GPWv4.11)
The latest update to the GPW data collection provides access to more
than 100 interactive map layers through a Web Map Service (WMS), so
visualization of the data is easier than ever using map tools such as
the SEDAC Map Viewer <http://sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu/mapping/viewer/>.
New age and sex categories of population estimates for the year 2010
enable users to explore potential differences in the spatial
distribution of specific population subgroups.
Global Subnational Infant Mortality Rates, v2 (2015)
An updated version of this data set has more recent (circa 2015) and
higher resolution input data. IMR data have been collected for 234
countries and territories, of which 143 include subnational units and
91, mostly smaller nations, include only national units. As a
georeferenced global subnational dataset of infant mortality rates,
IMRv2 has many potential applications that may be of interest to a wide
user community in interdisciplinary studies of health, development,
sustainability, and the environment, as well as policy making.
The Global Population Projection Grids Based on Shared Socioeconomic
An internally consistent dataset based on future scenarios of population
growth and urbanization, developed to support future climate and global
change research. The dataset projects population from 2010 to 2100.
