About this site

The Latvia's national web site POPIN-Latvia was created by the Centre of Demography, University of Latvia (consultant Mr. Peteris Zvidrins) within the framework of the UN POPIN work programme, guided by the POPIN Advisory/Coordinating Committee. The main aim of this web site is to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date picture of population and family planning issues in Latvia.

    The objectives are:
  • to collect, summarize and disseminate data and textual material on Latvia's population, including data on population processes in Latvia, basic information on population policies, and ongoing research and teaching programmes;
  • to present information on research and teaching activities of various state and non-governmental institutions, universities and other communities.

The site POPIN-Latvia was created with the support of UNFPA.
