The Demographic Observatory 2014 contains selected indicators from the 2014 revision of estimates and projections for the populations analysed. The figures contained in this publication are a revision of those presented in the Observatory 2013 and include updates of the estimations and projections of national populations from 1950 to 2100, taking into account new information sources available. Future issues will incorporate new estimates and projections, also prepared using the component method, but by simple ages and calendar years.

Notes and information sources, by country

Generally speaking, total population estimates by sex and age group for each of the 20 countries of Latin America for the period 1950-2015 were prepared in conjunction with national institutions. However, the projection period was prepared by the population estimates and projections team of the Latin American and Caribbean Demographic Centre (CELADE)-Population Division of ECLAC using the components method. The estimates and projections of the urban, rural and economically active populations were prepared by CELADE-Population Division of ECLAC following the methodology proposed in Demographic Observatory No. 2.2 Listed below are the information sources considered when estimating demographic dynamics.
