The U.S. Indicators collections includes PRB's research and analyses on U.S. demographic, social, economic, and health trends. The International Data provides recent demographic data for the world, global regions; more than 200 countries and territories in our World Population Data Sheet. From the online portal users can access all the Data Sheet indicators and export data and images.
U.S. and International data are sorted into the following categories:
- Population Dynamics
- Health & Family Planning
U.S. indicators are accessible at the state level and cover: population change, births, deaths, fertility rate, migration, racial and ethnic minorities population percentages, age breakdowns, household incomes, etc. PRB provides U.S. data dating back to 2000.
The 2017 World Population Datasheet is a microsite that provides a detailed view on international indicators plus digital features on the PRB's annual Data Sheet.
