Short summary
Population data are essential for studies on human–nature relationships, disaster or environmental health. Several global and continental gridded population data have been produced but have never been systematically compared. This article fills this gap and critically compares these gridded population datasets. Through the lens of the fitness for use concept it provides users with the knowledge needed to make informed decisions about appropriate data use in relation to the target application.
