This explosive urban growth will be especially dramatic and uneven in Asia.10/01/2001/Publications/Articles/2001/UrbanizationTakesonNewDimensionsinAsiasPopulationGiants.aspxea3ed720-8017-41de-95f6-8506e39ba11fAn Overview of Population and Development in VietnamVietnam is experiencing rapid population change. The population growth rate is only 1.4 percent per year and the total fertility rate is nearing replacement level. Despite dramatic progress, the country finds itself with a high abortion rate, low educational levels, and accelerating HIV rates. 02/07/2003/Publications/Articles/2003/AnOverviewofPopulationandDevelopmentinVietnam.aspx01bae70e-35a3-4b49-87b4-616af4e7fb07Objections Surface Over Nigerian Census ResultsSince December, when these provisional results of the 2006 Nigerian census were released, some Nigerians have rejected the numbers, while others have stood by them. 04/18/2007/Publications/Articles/2007/ObjectionsOverNigerianCensus.aspxdf9373a6-471e-4745-9383-d4897fec03aaWorkshop Examines Benefit of Canning-Karra-Wilde Model in Policy Planning in AfricaResearchers from the Population and Poverty Research Network (PopPov) have developed a macroeconomic model that estimates the impact of fertility declines on economic growth. The CKW Model was developed by PopPop researchers David Canning and Mahesh Karra from Harvard University and Joshua Wilde from University of South Florida. The model is especially useful in country-level policy planning. PRB and the researchers held a workshop on the model and have made a slide deck available. 09/13/2017/Publications/Articles/2017/Benefit-of-Canning-Karra-Wilde-Model.aspx0bcb331d-29b7-42f5-9f05-035eb9655798WSJ Live Features Mark Mather on Uptick in U.S. Birth RateMark Mather, associate vice president of U.S. Programs, was interviewed in a WSJ Live segment, "Is the U.S.'s 'Baby Recession' Over?".06/19/2015/Publications/Articles/2015/mather-wsj-baby-recession.aspxb9e731d7-7e0f-4205-a972-1d830eb8dec9Egypt's Fertility Decline SlowsA new demographic and health survey (DHS) from Egypt shows that the number of children per woman has declined.

Research is expanding on the contribution of population size, growth, and composition to climate change. 12/02/2015/Publications/Articles/2015/climate-population-linkages.aspxe2542c6a-6113-463a-8bbe-328e41853f32Age Structure Has Changed Differently Across Regions Between 1970 and 2014Today, the share of global population under age 20 has dropped to about 35 percent, the population between ages 20 and 64 represent 58 percent, and ages 65 and older represent 7 percent.10/16/2014/Publications/Articles/2014/wpds-2014-pyramids.aspxe1aa4c9e-9e98-421d-934c-0cbc30e2f6c7Countries Vary in Progress Toward Reducing Still-High Maternal MortalityGlobally, the maternal mortality ratio dropped from 380 deaths to 210 deaths per 100,000 live births between 1990 and 2013.10/15/2014/Publications/Articles/2014/wpds-2014-maternal-mortality.aspxd962b3e1-4d00-448a-aacb-7785385026c5
