This report presents the highlights from the results of the 2002 Revision of the official world population estimates and projections prepared by the Population Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations Secretariat. The 2002 Revision is the eighteenth round of global demographic estimates and projections undertaken by the Population Division since 1950. These official UN estimates (1950-2000) and projections (2000-2050) are for every country in the world, including estimates and projections of 28 demographic indicators, including birth rates, deaths rates, infant mortality rates and life expectancy. The full results of the 2002 Revision are presented in a series of three volumes. This first volume contains the comprehensive tables of the official UN world population estimates and projections. Covering the 1950-2050 time period, demographic profiles and selected demographic indicators are provided for each development group, major area, region and country. In all data tables, figures for 1950-2000 are estimates and those thereafter are projections, presented as medium, high, low and constan-fertility variants. There is an executive summary of the results and an overview of the assumptions underlying the 2002 revision
