Modelling changing population distributions

The study used available settlement datasets, historical census data and developed population distribution modelling methods to reconstruct population distribution changes over 30 years across the Kenyan Coast, a data-scarce area characterized by high population growth rates. The methodological challenges and opportunities associated with the production of gridded population distribution time-series were explored.

Fine resolution mapping of population age-structures

Using geolocated household surveys data to predict the proportions of population under 5 years, the results show that southern Nigeria had lower proportions of children under 5 as compared to the northern regions. For example, Kano, Katsina and Kaduna states had some of the highest proportions of population. The gaps in estimated number of bed-nets […]
