GHS POPULATION GRID (LDS)

This spatial raster dataset depicts the distribution and density of population, expressed as the number of people per cell.

Residential population estimates for target years 1975, 1990, 2000 and 2015 provided by CIESIN GPWv4 were disaggregated from census or administrative units to grid cells, informed by the distribution and density of built-up as mapped in the Global Human Settlement Layer (GHSL) global layer per corresponding epoch.
