We provide an overview of the radio pulsar population as it is currently understood, and give predictions for surveys with predominantly large single- dish radio facilities over the coming decade. Over 10,000 pulsars are expected to be found. Applications include tests of gravity and as natural laboratories for low-frequency gravitational waves.
