COVID-19 outbreak: an observational and modelling study
Due to the recent events in Ukraine, the WorldPop Project prioritised construction of population datasets for the country. The datasets were built following the random forests methodology and document estimated population per grid cell and population per hectare for each c.100x100m grid cell for different timepoints in the 2010-2020 period.
Population movement estimates are calculated by combining de-identified data on SIM card movements with available population data. Changes in mobility pattern are identified by comparing SIM card movements to normal pre-earthquake movements. Estimates will be updated and calibrated as more data becomes available.
This page provides access to WorldPop datasets and images for West African countries covering population distributions and mobility patterns to support efforts in controlling the ongoing ebola virus outbreak. They are updated according to the date of the posting – keep checking back for updates and new datasets.
