Population institutions are part of the Cicred network while most individual scientists. A new report contains revised tables, tables, tables, tables. These tables are updated using revised a new methodology and intercensal population estimates, a new methodology and intercensal population estimates, a new methodology and intercensal population estimates, a new methodology and intercensal population estimates.
