List of population related meta concepts and meta lists

Outline of demography contains human demography and population related important concepts and high-level aggregated lists compiled in the useful categories.

The subheadings have been grouped by the following 4 categories:

  1. Meta (lit. "highest" level) units, such as the universal important concepts related to demographics and places.
  2. Macro (lit. "high" level) units where the "whole world" is the smallest unit of measurement, such as the aggregated summary demographics at global level. For example, United Nations.
  3. Meso (lit. "middle" or "intermediate" level) units where the smallest unit of measurement cover more than one nation and more than one continent but not all the nations or continents. For example, summary list at continental level, e.g. Eurasia and Latin America or Middle East which cover two or more continents. Other examples include the intercontinental organisations e.g. the Commonwealth of Nations or the organisation of Arab states.
  4. Micro (lit. "lower" or "smaller") level units where country is the smallest unit of measurement, such as the "globally aggregated lists" by the "individual countries" .

Please do not add sections on the items that are the nano (lit. "minor" or "tiny") level units as per the context described above, e.g. list of things within a city must be kept out.
