This publication sets out the results of long-range population projections, based on the data in the World Population Prospects: the 2002 Revision (published by the UN in three volumes: ISBNs 9211513782, 9211513790 & 9211513812). This new set of long-range population projections includes two major innovations on previous editions: for the first time projections are made at the national level to give greater detail; and the time horizon has been extended to the year 2300. It also contains a number of essays on the issue of long-range projections written by experts from outside the UN. Based on these projections, the world population is forecast to reach 8.97 billion by 2300. (source: Nielsen Book Data)

There has been ongoing research into the nature of the relationship between mortality and fertility and the socio-economic factors that affect that relationship. Health, family planning and educational institutions are regarded in the present day as a mediator of fertility and mortality behaviour. Three case studies were performed to examine the interrelationships between child survival and fertility. The analysis focused on how availability and contact with community health and family planning services mediate the relationships between child survival and fertility. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
