World Urbanization Prospects: The 2003 Revision
On 24 March 2004, the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs' Population Division released its 2003 Revision of World Urbanization Prospects. This Revision presents estimates and projections of the total, urban and rural populations of the world, its 21 regions and five major areas for the period 1950-1030, as well as for the 228 countries or areas of the world. It also provides estimates and projections of the population of urban agglomerations with 750,000 inhabitants or more in 2000. The population figures for the total population are consistent with the size of each country as estimated or projected with the 2002 Revision of World Population Prospects.
results of the 2003 Revision of World Urbanization Prospects are summarized
in two press releases (English and
French), highlights and two wall charts.
A complete set of data tables is attached to the highlights.
