Population Reference Bureau (PRB)
Founded in 1929, the Population Reference Bureau is the leader in providing timely and
objective information on U.S. and international population trends and their implications.
PRB informs policymakers, educators, the media, and concerned citizens working in the
public interest around the world through a broad range of activities, including publications,
information services, seminars and workshops, and technical support. Our efforts are sup-
ported by government contracts, foundation grants, individual and corporate contributions,
and the sale of publications. PRB is governed by a Board of Trustees representing diverse
community and professional interests.
