* When authors make use of data they should cite both the data set and the scientific publication, if available. Such a practice gives credit to data set producers and advances principles of transparency and reproducibility. Please visit the data citations page for details. Users who would like to choose to format the citation(s) for this dataset using a myriad of alternate styles can copy the DOI number and paste it into Crosscite's website.

Global Population Projection Grids Based on Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSPs), 2010-2100 are available as global grids in ASCII (.asc), GeoTIFF (.tif), Esri Grid (.adf), and netCDF-4 (.nc) formats for urban, rural, and total population. Each downloadable object is a compressed zip file, containing the formatted grids plus documentation. The zip files range from ~35 to 52 MB in size.
Note: A downscaled 1-km grid version of these population projections is available at Global 1-km Downscaled Population Base Year and Projection Grids for the SSPs, v1.01 (2000)
