Demographic information is often provided on anational basis, but global environmental andother cross-disciplinary studies usually requiredata that are referenced by geographiccoordinates, such as latitude and longitude,rather than by political or administrative units. Inthis Gridded Population of the World (GPW)data set, the distribution of human population isconverted from national or subnational units to aseries of georeferenced quadrilateral grids.
