About this website

The INED website offers a wide range of resources for the general public. It includes information on the Institute, on research in progress, events and publications. The "All about population" section gives access to statistics produced or analysed by INED. It also presents population questions in an entertaining and informative way via animations, games and fact sheets especially designed for use in the classroom.
