The World Population Prospects allows users to change variables to learn about population prospects in the world. Users can change variables such as population, population density, location, date and variant in the basic panel to obtain basic output while a second panel allows users to obtain more detailed information such as median age, total fertility rate and population by age. There are also full country profiles, a profile of assumptions, definitions of regions, a glossary and sources. This is a site full of interesting and interactive population data from around the world.
