United Nations Population Information Network (POPIN)
POPIN is a decentralized community of population institutions organized into regional and national networks in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean, Europe and Northern America. Plans are underway for the establishment of a population information network for Western Asia. The POPIN community includes governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations working at the national, subregional or international level. The global POPIN Coordinating Unit is located within the Population Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) of the United Nations Secretariat. The Electronic Library provides such resources as bibliographies and indexes, country profiles, demographic/statistical sites, directories and registries, Internet subject guides, glossaries, journals, maps, software and training materials. There is also access to regional population trends, conferences, and wallcharts.
