The Population and Vital Statistics Report presents most recent data on population size (total, male and female) from the latest available census of the population, national official population estimates and the number and rate (births, deaths and infant deaths) for the latest available year within the past 15 years. It also presents United Nations estimates of the mid-year population of the world, and its major areas and regions.

The tables of the latest population and vital statistics report are downloadable in pdf format below. A full explanation of each table can be found in the Technical Notes. Tables 2 and 3 of the report are updated every two weeks. A printed version is issued once a year in January. Subscriptions to the Population and Vital Statistics Report are available from the United Nations publications.
