Engineers, designers, and infrastructure planners make up a large Population Explorer user group. Last week, we introduced using Population Explorer for identifying well infrastructure beneficiaries. This week, we continue our discussion with a focus on bridge building.
Population Explorer works closely with international development organizations to help determine the impact of resources on local populations. In this week's blog, we look into an interesting case study where Population Explorer is used to identify African beneficiaries of infrastructure projects like wells.
The field of public health works to promote and protect the health of citizens and the communities where they live, learn, work and play. Those in the public health field work to prevent people from getting sick or injured by promoting wellness and encouraging healthy life choices. Population Explorer helps the public health sector by providing accurate, fast population and demographic data so first responders, epidemiologists, health educators, public policymakers can retrieve the data they need immediately and effectively. By using the Population ExplorerTM application, those in the public health sector have access to an unequivocal, interactive mapping tool that instantly sources the most accurate, authoritative, and current demographic data available.
Can you begin to imagine the many ways population data are used in social sciences? The possibilities are endless. Social Sciences are focused on the social and health science disciplines such as economics, geography, anthropology, and sociology. Curious about a population affected by disease outbreak? or maybe you want to map the populations that live within a specific cultural territory or impoverished zone? The Population ExplorerTM application offers an interactive-mapping tool that is straightforward and based on the most accurate, validated, and current demographic data available.
How do the copious data resources available today impact education? How are population and demographic data best used by students and teachers? From curriculum design and development to research, academics and educational professionals rely on the data from Population ExplorerTM to develop their resources and make informed decisions.
Journalists are constantly seeking new content backed by statistics. They rely on varied information sources and especially population data to craft content, fact check, and assess the people affected. Because reporters almost always include elements of the human impacts in their stories, population data are a mandatory reference to define the scope and scale of current events. This need makes population data an essential part of the media toolkit.
