Population Weighted Density

Population Weighted Density (PWD) is an alternative to conventional approaches to population density that is arguably better suited to some types of research in fields of social science and epidemiology. In this release WorldPop publishes what we believe may be the first set of global estimates for PWD, which we offer at national and subnational levels since 2000. Please make sure you have read our Population Weighted Density overview page before choosing and downloading a dataset.
