    This bulletin issue was prepared by Guiomar Bay on the basis of the national population estimates and projections produced by Susana Schkolnik. Activities were coordinated by Juan Chackiel, Chief of the Demography Area of the Latin America and Caribbean Demographic Centre (CELADE)--Population Division. This issue covers information for Latin American and Caribbean countries and territories and is based on estimates and projections from the Population Division of the United Nations. The population figures for the calendar years 1995-2005 were obtained by interpolation using Karup-King multipliers. The projected populations were based on a "medium" or "recommended" fertility projection together with notes and projections of the total urban and rural population. The estimates and projections of the total population by sex and age group for each of the 20 countries for the period 1970-2025 were prepared mostly in conjunction with national institutions. The urban and rural population projections were in almost all cases prepared by CELADE because most of the countries have not yet prepared their own projections based on the most recent census data. A detailed list of information sources and a description of the methodology used for each country are also included.
