Methodology

The population data is a projection based on the 2006 census conducted by Nigeria Population Commission. The projection was done by Polio EOC, WHO, UNICEF for vaccination and polio campaigns.
Original 2006 census data can be found [here] (https://data.humdata.org/dataset/nigeria-population-statistics/resource/59261952-cb67-41ad-bec8-c8d3613e63f0).

Caveats / Comments

APRIL 25, 2019 UPDATE: The Senatorial Districts are now fully integrated into the gazetteer, population statistics tables, and the COD-AB.

The projection was adopted for the 2017 humanitarian programme cycle. The projection does not represent official population data for the Nigeria Government. It represents the best available data to be used by the humanitarian community.
