Abstract

Our understanding of interactions between population and environment has been hampered by differences in the data structures and analysis methods and tools used within different disciplines, as well as a dearth of internationally comparable data. Closely integrating global population data with data on the environment allows us to describe the unfolding transformation of human and ecological systems. Data on the human population are crucial for understanding changes in the Earth’s biological and climate processes; equally important, data on climate and land provide essential tools for understanding the impact of environmental change on human behavior. By creating a framework for locating, analyzing, and visualizing the world's population and environment in time and space, IPUMS Terra provides unprecedented opportunities for investigating the agents of change, assessing their implications for human society and the environment, and developing policies to meet future challenges.
