On this site, you find the dynamic version of the Population Situation Analysis (PSA) based on the manual published in 2011. As soon as new tools, research or evidence become available, we will integrate these into the website version of the guide. Therefore, the online tool of the PSA will in the future be changing its content, including new information on methodology, sources and tools.

To translate this page, please select your language from the top of the sidebar on the right.

When using this custom download the resulting pdf may have some gaps of blank space and repeated page numbers due to separating and rejoining the various sections of the PSA. The complete PSA download is also available in its original format to the right.
