Modelled gridded population estimates for Zambia 2019, version 1.0

  • GeoTIFF ZMB_population_v1_0_gridded.zip
    Updated: 27 January 2021

    Bottom-up gridded population estimates (~100m) for Zambia. This zip file contains a geotiff raster with estimates of total population size for each approximately 100 m grid cell across the study area. It also contains a geotiff raster with estimates of uncertainty in the population estimates.

  • GeoTIFF ZMB_population_v1_0_agesex.zip
    Updated: 27 January 2021

    Bottom-up gridded population estimates (~100m) for specific age-sex groups. This zip file contains geotiff rasters with estimates of population sizes for individual age-sex groups for each approximately 100 m grid cell across the study area.

  • GeoTIFF ZMB_population_v1_0_admin.zip
    Updated: 27 January 2021

    Bottom-up population totals for administrative units. This zip file contains population totals for administrative units in Zambia (i.e. provinces and districts). The boundaries are included as shapefiles with the population estimates included in the attribute tables.

  • GeoTIFF ZMB_population_v1_0_mastergrid.tif
    Updated: 27 January 2021

    Mastergrid for gridded population estimates. This geotiff raster contains the mastergrid used to define where population estimates were made. It contains a value of 1 where population estimates were made and a value of 0 or NA everywhere else. Cell IDs from the mastergrid can be used to lookup values in the SQL database.

  • PDF ZMB_population_v1_0_README.pdf
    Updated: 27 January 2021

    README: ZMB Population v1.0. This README file provides information about the data included in the data release, how it was produced, source data that were used, and known assumptions and limitations of the results.

  • SQL ZMB_population_v1_0_sql.sql
    Updated: 27 January 2021

    SQL database with Bayesian posterior population predictions. This SQLite database contains samples from the Bayesian posterior predictions of population size in each grid cell. The database can be used to develop applications that query the population estimates.

  • PNG ZMB_population_v1_0_tiles.zip
    Updated: 27 January 2021

    Image tiles for gridded population estimates. These image tiles (XYZ format) allow for rapid display of the 100 m gridded population estimates across the study area in web applications.
