World Population Policies

World Population Policies 2019

The World Population Policies database provides comprehensive and up-to-date information on the population policy situation and trends for all Member States and non-member States of the United Nations. The Database is updated biennially by conducting a detailed country-by-country review of national plans and strategies, programme reports, legislative documents, official statements and various international, inter-governmental and non-governmental sources, as well as by using official responses to the United Nations Inquiry among Governments on Population and Development. The web-interface for the Database allows users to run custom data queries on population policies and selected demographic and socioeconomic indicators for all countries and selected time points between 1976 and 2015, create graphs and maps, and generate country profiles.

World Population Policies 2019: International Migration Policies and Programmes focused on international migration policies and programmes in 111 countries that responded to the module on international migration (module III) of the United Nations Twelfth Inquiry among Governments on Population and Development.
