This report provides a comprehensive overview of key aspects of population policies and dynamics for 197 countries since the mid-1970s. Updated biennially, it documents changes in key aspects of Government views and policies related to population size and growth, population age structure, fertility, reproductive health and family planning, health and mortality, spatial distribution and internal migration, and international migration. The report also includes two-page country profiles, with the first page containing information on changes in the Government views and policies and the second page containing data on selected population indicators corresponding to 1985, 1995, 2005 and 2013, the most recent revision year.




In the two decades since the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD), as the world has made progress in addressing population and development issues, new population patterns and trends have emerged that require renewed, differentiated policies and programme efforts at both national and international levels. Using information on Government views and policies on population issues gathered in the World Population Policies Database, the current report documents changes in population policies and related indicators between 1976 and 2013 for all 193 Member States, two Observer States and two non-member States of the United Nations. Following are the highlights of the report
