A csv file containing all carnivore species currently known to have an association with a zoonotic disease (species column) and whether each species' range overlaps with a raster detailing the top 20% of population growth from 2000 to 2020 (overlap_population_growth). A value of 1 in the overlap_population_growth column indicates that the species' range overlaps with this raster. The species range data are from the IUCN RedList and have been rasterized to 100 km2. Human population density data from 2000 and 2020 were obtained from WorldPop, resampled to 100 km2 to match the resolution of the species' range data, and used to obtain regions of population density increase.
