Duties andResponsibilities

The World Population Prospects is the leading output released by the United Nations Population Division and it is considered to embody the most authoritative views of population levels, trends and characteristics. These data are used throughout the United Nations system for calculation of indicators that require population as input and serve in projecting other population-related variables or in modelling complex systems that use population as an exogenous variable. In addition, several entities and organizations of the United Nations distribute the results of World Population Prospects through their own databases and websites (e.g., the World Bank, UNESCO, UNICEF, World Health Organization, UNFPA, Statistics Division/DESA, UNDP, ILO, FAO). World Population Prospects presents estimates and projections for 237 countries and areas. In the preparatory work, the Population Division takes into account a large number of available data sources to derive population estimates and demographic indicators. The United Nations Population Division strives to make as transparent as possible the steps and processes involved in revising the population estimates and projections, by making available as many data, metadata and documentation as possible. The Making Family Planning Count project is an initiative of the United Nations Population Division to address gaps in comparable, timely and transparent global information on family planning indicators and underlying population data. This work is related to the improved web-based dissemination of population and demographic estimates and projections from World Population Prospects. The Population Division developed Data Portal https://population.un.org/dataportal/home enabling interactive access and visualizations of global family planning and related population indicators, including the indicators from the 2022 revision of World Population Prospects. Additional support from an individual contractor with advanced skills and experience in SQL database development and computer programming in developing responsive data-driven interactive web portal (full-stack enterprise application developer / Web developer) is needed to further develop the data portal functionalities based on the user feedback received since the release of the 2022 revision in July 2022 and to include additional population-related indicators. The individual contractor will develop and implement the integration of additional indicators and functionalities in preparation for the 2024 revision of World Population Prospects. Data portal will enable comparisons of main population and demographic indicators across countries and regions in the datasets the United Nations Population Division produces, and will ultimately be a useful input for reports, presentations, public release materials and other outputs presented to Member States and other parties. The individual contractor will update the functionalities of the interactive Data Portal of the Population Division https://population.un.org/dataportal/home based on the feedback received from users since the release of the 2022 revision of World Population Prospects in July 2022. The individual contractor will develop and implement the integration of additional indicators and functionalities in preparation for the 2024 revision of World Population Prospects.
