World population to 2300

I highly recommend the following UN report on population. It makes fascinating reading.

I found the essays beginning on page 89 particularly interesting, but it's all good.

Unless you are an expert demographer, your world view will certainly change as the result of reading these papers.


  1. Sorry, but how is this related to Python?

    I mean, I do find it interesting by chance, but this kind of off-topic posts to Planet Python make me consider not following it anymore.

    If you want to post Python-unrelated posts, please use tags and let Planet Python admins know the feed for the tag you use for Python related posts.


  2. Serendipity is a wonderful thing. Interesting stats

  3. This comment isn't directly related to Python. This is my personal blog. Feel free not to read it.
