* 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.

Note: These population projections are a downscaled version of Global One-Eighth Degree Population Base Year and Projection Grids for the SSPs, v1.01 (2000), published in Jones and O'Neill (2016).
The Global Population Projection Grids Based on SSPs, Downscaled 1-km Grids, v1 (2010 – 2100) data are available as global grids in GeoTIFF (.tif) and netCDF-4 (.nc) formats for urban, rural, and total population. Each downloadable object is a compressed zip file, containing these formatted grids plus documentation.
The zip files range from ~4.0 - 9.6 GB in size and may take several minutes to download. Please see the readme text file for more information.
