Demography North are excited to introduce a new population projections product

RePPP (Regional Population Projection Program)

Dr Tom Wilson

 RePPP (Regional Population Projection Program) is an Excel-based program which produces subnational population projections using a state-of-the-art cohort-component model. It generates projections by sex and five year age group for between 2 and 50 subnational regions over a projection horizon of between 5 and 50 years. The program is suitable for regions varying in size from SA2 areas to States and Territories. Click here for full details including user guide and software requirements. 

Key features
  • projects populations by sex and five year age group up to age 85+
  • handles between 2 and 50 subnational regions
  • region size can vary from SA2 areas to States / Territories
  • projection horizon of between 5 and 50 years
  • easy to use Excel interface
  • state-of-the-art multi-bi-regional cohort-component projection model
  • low input data requirements compared to standard multiregional models
  • separation of ‘headline’ projection assumptions (e.g. TFR, life expectancy at birth) from age profiles to facilitate easier assumption-setting and scenario creation
  • option to constrain age-sex projections to independent population totals
  • fast run time
  • validation routine to check the validity of input data
  • separate Excel output files containing various tables and graphs for each region
  • several derived projection variables output (median age, % population by broad age group, population growth rates, components of change, population growth index, sex ratios by age)
  • example input data and projections supplied
  • User Guide with step-by-step instructions
  • assistance with preparing data inputs available on request
