Global Population Profile: 2002 summarizes the most important trends in global population at the dawn of the 21st century. The presentation is organized around four themes: (1) Global Population; (2) Growth, Global Population; (3) Composition, Contraceptive Prevalence in the Developing World; and (4) the AIDS Pandemic in the 21st Century. This report, looks forward into the next 50 years to consider a wide range of demographic phenomena. The first two sections provide a brief overview of current understanding and expectations of the growth and composition of global population. The third section draws attention to the contribution of contraceptive use to fertility change in the less developed world. The fourth section of the report reviews current knowledge about the demographic impacts of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Finally, the appendices that conclude this volume present detailed data and other supporting information upon which our estimates and projections are based. In this way, the most important and interesting trends in global population at the beginning of the 21st century are profiled.
