If you disagree with this list, then propose another site yourself and we will add the link.  


1.Popclocks several update themselves automatically like www-popexpo.ined.fr/eMain.html Helen N says this a good site and gives you the population when you were born (year) plus lots more.

An alternative  www.ibiblio.org/lunarbin/worldpop
gives you the world population from any DATE from 1970 onwards.

2. Video Nation Human beings are what population studies are about. Why not try www.bbc.co.uk/videonation and I know of at least one testimony about asylum seekers. Try refugee or migration in the search engine. You will need a broadband connection.
3. The US Census has good data as well as a world population clock. http://www.census.gov/main/www/popclock.html 

This US Census Bureau  http://www.census.gov  is full of world and national population statistics and maps. US coverage is obviously the most comprehensive, but there are also listings for other International Statistics Agencies.

Stuart Hitch says: http://www.census.gov/ipc/www/idbnew.html This is a fantastic source of population pyramid data for just about anywhere in the world and is particularly useful when trying to look at predictions (e.g. as a result of the One Child Policy in China)!

Dynamic Population Pyramid for Brazil3. Population pyramids www.census.gov/ipc/www/idbpyr.html (graphs that show the distribution of population by age and sex) for one country can be calculated automatically from 1950 -2050.  Modelling I hear you cry!

Noel Jenkins recommends his old school's enquiry into population data using excel and the website above. We agree it is very good www.geography.ndo.co.uk/analysingpop.htm

4. UK National Statistics www.statistics.gov.uk  This includes the Census and the particularly rich Neighbourhood Statistics site.
5. Keep up to date with the RGS/IBG 'Geography in the News'. There is an 'In-depth report' on international migration and the UK .  www.geographyinthenews.rgs.org

You will need to register but it is free.

6. The Census of India www.censusindia.net has an on-line interactive thematic mapping programme.

You will need to understand data intervals to make sense of it. 

 

7. The United Nations UNPOP database http://esa.un.org/unpp allows you to seach for what ever data you like. You can create and Download your own tables for the world and the countries of the world. There is also the UN Cyberschoolbus Infonation www.un.org/Pubs/CyberSchoolBus/index.asp too.
8. The Population Reference Bureau www.prb.org  has short articles and simple graphs and data. There is a newsletter 'Population Today'  and the section for educators.
9.Are you and optimist or a pessimist? Find out about the Simon/Ehrlich debate that was very important in the early 1990s.

11. Clare Jackson from West Sussex recommends www.peopleandplanet.net because of its which has news stories about population.
