Population Weighted Density Population Weighted Density / Unconstrained national Population Weighted Density ( 1km resolution ) / World 1000m. Population Weighted Density

Unconstrained national population weighted density in 2000 ,2005, 2010, 2015 and 2020 ( 1km resolution )

National level Population Weighted Density (PWD) metrics produced using 1km WorldPop population datasets. The metrics is available to download in geojson, csv and shp file format.

The population weighted density metrics presented here include:

PWC (Lat, Lon) – contains the population weighted centroids
PWD_A - PWD of region calculated using arithmetic mean to average the weighted densities (Craig et al., 1984)
PWD_G - PWD based on the geometric mean (Craig et al., 1984) .
PWD_M – population weighted median density based on weighted median , as suggested by Ottensmann (2018)
PWD_P{1..100} - distribution quantiles

Please make sure you have read our Population Weighted Density overview page before choosing and downloading a dataset.
