New Estimates: Brazil subnational - Population by age
Wednesday, 21 Aug 2019 16:14 ET
By Amy Berdanier
Summary
August 2019 -- Moody's Analytics now estimates population by broad age brackets for Brazil and its states (112 new quarterly series from 1960).
Detail

Motivation: Our national source, the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE), reports subnational population under two different programs with different combinations of properties:

  • Census, decennial, with total population and one-year age brackets, from 1960
  • "Continuous PNAD" sample survey, quarterly, with broad age brackets (0 to 13, 14 to 17, 18 to 24, 25 to 39, 40 to 59, 60 and older), from 2012Q1

Response: For international consistency, Moody's Analytics estimates population, by standardized broad age brackets (total, ages 0 to 14, 15 to 64, 65 and older), quarterly, from 1960Q1.

Properties

  • Measurements: Thousands of persons (Ths. #)
  • Adjustment: Seasonally adjusted (SA)
  • Geo coverage: 
    • Country
    • All states (26)
    • Federal district (1)
  • Start date: 1960Q1

The series reside in the historical catalog (Brazil » Demographics » Population » Moody's Analytics Estimated) and include, for example: 

  • RPOPQ.IBRA        = Population - All ages, (Ths. #, SA) - for Brazil
  • RPOP0014Q.IBRA_RJ = Ages 0-14 - for State of São Paulo
  • RPOP1564Q.IBRA_SP = Ages 15-64 - for State of Rio de Janeiro
  • RPOP65GQ.IBRA_BA  = Ages 65 and older - for State of Bahia

Because catalog locations are subject to change, the upper-right search box on DataBuffet.com provides a "find in catalog" mode that accepts a mnemonic. 

Method: Please refer to the background documentation in Mnemonic 411.
