This paper presents a computer programme for making population projections using the component method. The basic outlines of the programme have been described in an earlier working paper of the population Division entitled Demography projections with the aid of computers. The present paper describes the types of projection that this programme can do, information that it will generate, the steps of projection, the specifications of input and output data, input data card formats, and the projection programme, in Fortran-IV language.
