Version 2.0 of the Human Capital Data Explorer is online now!

The Wittgenstein Centre Human Capital Data Explorer contains detailed data by age, sex and educational attainment (6 categories and up to 8 for 60 countries) for a large set of indicators w.r.t. Population and Human Capital Stocks, Demographic Change and New aging indicators of some 200 countries (and regions) for the period from 1950 to 2100. This website presents a set of different scenarios of future population and human capital trends from 2015 to 2100 and includes back projections from 2015 to 1950. The Graphic Explorer allows to visualize population pyramids and the population size by education for any country and to create maps about the available indicators.

The Wittgenstein Centre aspires to be a world leader in the advancement of demographic methods and their application to the analysis of human capital and population dynamics. In assessing the effects of these forces on long-term human well-being, we combine scientific excellence in a multidisciplinary context with relevance to a global audience. It is a collaboration among the Department of Demography of the University of Vienna, the World Population Program of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) and the Vienna Institute of Demography of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (VID/ÖAW).
