(Newsletter: CRVS Insight August 2018)

The non-profit Population Reference Bureau (PRB) recently released its 2018 World Population Data Sheet which highlights key, global population projections. Produced annually since 1962, the 2018 version estimates that the global population will climb 2.3 billion by 2050 despite a declining, worldwide total fertility rate.

The PRB Data Sheet specifically emphasizes the global “shift toward an older age structure” and what this will mean for countries moving forward. For example, the PRB’s analysis shows that “By 2050, 82 countries are projected to have at least 20 percent of their population ages 65 and over, up from 13 countries today”.

And although the PRB Data Sheet stresses the importance of aging populations, the insights do not stop there. The Data Sheet also includes a lesson plan for teachers, an interactive microsite open for exploration and even a media toolkit with key messages, social media posts and infographics to assist organizations in communicating the findings on their own platforms.
