Data from the United Nations World Population Prospects 2017, released on June 21, 2017.
The package contains the following datasets:
tfr, tfr_supplemental, tfrprojMed, tfrproj80u, tfrproj80l, tfrproj95u, tfrproj95l, tfrprojHigh, tfrprojLow: estimates and projections of total fertility rate, including the projected 80% and 95% probability bounds, as well as low and high half child variants.
e0F, e0M, e0X_supplemental, e0Xproj, e0Xproj80u, e0Xproj80l, e0Xproj95u, e0Xproj95l: sex-specific estimates and projections of life expectancy with X=“F” and “M”, including the projected 80% and 95% probability bounds.
pop, popproj, popproj80u, popproj80l, popproj95u, popproj95l, popprojHigh, popprojLow: historical estimates of total population counts, as well as the median, probability bounds and the high and low variants of population projections.
popFT, popMT, popFTproj, popMTproj: historical estimates and projection medians for sex-specific total population.
popF, popM, popXprojMed, popXprojHigh, popXprojLow: age- and sex-specific population estimates and projections with X=“F” and “M”, including the high and low variants.
mxF, mxM: age- and sex-specific mortality rates
migration: total net migration
sexRatio: sex ratio at birth as a ratio of female to male
percentASFR: distribution of age-specific fertility rates
UNlocations: location dataset
The package wppExplorer offers a shiny user interface to explore these datasets as well as functions for convenient extraction of information from the data, see function
wpp.indicator in wppExplorer, or https://rstudio.stat.washington.edu/shiny/wppExplorer/inst/explore/.
These datasets are based on estimates and projections of United Nations, Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Population Division (2017).
