Dataset details: Rwanda 100m Population
______________________________________________

DATASET: Version 2.0 estimates for numbers of people per grid cell for 2000, 2010, 2015 and 2020, with national totals adjusted to match UN population division estimates (http://esa.un.org/wpp/), and remaining unadjusted. Note, an additional dataset is included for the census year, on which 2000, 2010, 2015 and 2020 estimates are based.
