1km Age structures in 2020

Estimates of total number of people per grid square broken down by sex and age groupings (including 0-1 and by 5-year up to 80+) in 2020
The dataset is available to download in Geotiff format at a resolution of 1km. The projection is Geographic Coordinate System, WGS84. The units are estimated number of male/female in each age group per grid square.
The mapping approach is Pezzulo, C. et al. Sub-national mapping of population pyramids and dependency ratios in Africa and Asia. Sci. Data 4:170089 doi:10.1038/sdata.2017.89 (2017)

Filenames: Example - global_f_5_2020_1km.tif People per pixel (PPP) for female age group 5 to 9 years (f_05) for year 2020.
For other datasets, m = male, 00 = age group 0 to 12months, 01 = age group 1 to 4 years, 80 = age 80 years and over.
