- To provide a raster representation of nation-states in GPWv4 for use in aggregating population data.
- Gridded Population of the World, Version 4 (GPWv4) National Identifier Grid is created from the input census units to create a raster surface where pixels (grid cells) that cover the same census data source - most often a country or territory - have the same value. Note that these data represent the area covered by the statistical data as provided, and are not official representations of country or territory boundaries.
