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 
Pathways (SSPs) 
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.
