- To describe changing population distribution and growth in Latin America and the Caribbean using spatially consistent and comparable units at a spatial resolution suitable to regional change analysis.
- The Latin America and the Caribbean Population Time Series data set provides total population estimates using spatially consistent and comparable units for Latin American municipalities or equivalent administrative units for the years 1990 and 2000. The data set consists of two vector polygon layers: one layer displays population estimates for subnational administrative units in 1990 and 2000, including population counts, density, and percent change, at the municipality level or equivalent (level 2); a second layer summarizes this information at the country level (level 0).
