How you can help

The Population Project is more than a site.
It is a worldwide initiative.

Here’s how you can help:


Send Us Lists

The world map depicted on the home page should give you an idea of the countries where we need the most help. The ideal list is long, official, and contains some notion of birth year.

For more information, read our Volunteer handbook.

Counting your family members, friends, schoolmates, and colleagues, you probably know a few hundred people. It’s up to you to see them all on the Population Project! Look them up one by one on the site. If their record is incomplete, enrich it. If it doesn’t exist yet, create it! It takes less than a minute and you’ll be given the opportunity to notify your friend.
