Africa Faces Mixed Progress, Daunting Challenges, in Improving Population Well-Being

Population Reference Bureau (PRB) reports that even as African women use family planning more and bear fewer children, the continent's youthful population will fuel the continent's growth for many decades to come. According to the 2008 Africa Population Data Sheet, Africa's population of 967 million is projected to grow to 1.9 billion by 2050, produced by the Population Reference Bureau (PRB) and the African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC).

*The Data Sheet also includes a series of indicators on population growth, urbanization, family planning use, teenage motherhood, HIV/AIDS, and gross national income per capita for African countries.
