Wittgenstein Centre Data Explorer


The Wittgenstein Centre Data Explorer provides data on the new set of projections by levels of educational attainment, produced by a large team of researchers at the Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital and at other institutions. It also includes population projections developed for the 5th assessment report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) according to a set of Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSP) scenarios.

Version 1.2 includes the back projections from 2010 to 1970. More information in Speringer et al. (2015) and Goujon et al. (2016).

More detailed information on the data behind the global population projections by age, sex and education can be found in Lutz, Butz, and K.C. (2014) and in the executive summary.
