A checklist for reviewing draft population projections

Thomas Wilson

Research output: Book/ReportOther report


The literature on population projections says very little about one crucial step of the projections production process – checking draft projection outputs for errors and plausibility. Unfortunately, it is quite possible to obtain implausible projections even when using the latest projection models and carefully prepared input data. This paper presents a checklist to assist with checking draft population projection outputs for plausibility. Applying the checklist does not guarantee accurate projections, but it should help identify serious errors and embarrassingly implausible projections prior to publication.
