There are two components to Online Database

Quickview and Datamine

Quickview is a series of preset tables and charts which you can select between from the menu on the left of the screen. Any selection can be downloaded in csv format.

Datamine gives you the ability to create your own tables - selecting multiple countries/Provinces/cities, years and variables. The resulting table can be downloaded in csv format


This is the openign screen after logging in to Demographics 360. 

Quickview is designed to allow you to quickly look up key statistics on the selected region.  You only have to make two selections -

  1. at the top right you select the country/province/city you want to get information on and

  2. Down the left side is a list of predefined tables - simply click on one and the table and the associated chart is displayed.

In addition you can also select to show on the same screen either

  1. charts of these variables, or

  2. the same table for another country/region or city making quick comparisons very easy. For example which country has the faster growing birth rate – the United Kingdom or Germany?

In addition you can select the years displayed in each of the 5 columns. The year range available is 2005 to 2037.


The preset tables that are available are listed below.  We add to this set from time to time in response to user requests.

Create Your Own Forecasts  (Coming Soon)

With our ‘Interactive Forecasts’ app you can choose any country, China Province or City – alter the forecast value for any or all of the variables in the centre of the chart below and to see the impact on the demographic and economic variables listed around the chart for the years you have selected.

Many variables influence the future demographic and socio economic profile of a country. It’s not always agreed how these might change in future. For example, in a particular country the birth rates might not reduce as fast as some expect and with that, female participation in the workforce does not increase. This will limit growth of the labour force, GDP, household incomes – by how much?  You can test as many scenarios as you like.
