Population Projections

Category :     03 March,2016


              In the past NIPS has actively participated in preparing the population projection at national and provincial level. Recently, NIPS initiated the up-dation of population projections for national, provincial/regional and district levels. The projections will be prepared in continuation of the population projections for the national and provincial estimates as done by the Planning Commission during 2009 for the preparation of 10th Five Year plan (2010-2015).
              As the last population census was conducted in 1998, there is continuous need for up to date population information for planning and reporting purposes. Since the last projection (2009), new data has been generated in the form of surveys, like PDHS 2012-13. There is need for fresh/revised population estimates/projection which will go up to district level.              
Therefore, NIPS has constituted a Working Group of experts belonging to Government departments and other concerned organizations for undertaking this exercise (List of Members at Annex-1).              
Presently NIPS is preparing the first draft of projections on the basis of latest data relating to fertility (PDHS 2012-13). The draft of projection will reviewed by the Working Group and share with the Planning Commission and other departments.
