Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Calculated, when available, from the latest national censuses or most recent official estimates (many of which are cited in their respective column), using the exponential formula shown on the List of countries by past and future population article. This is done to normalize the different populations to a unique date, so that they are really comparable.
  2. ^ It corresponds to the following formula: projection2015/projection2014x100-100.
  3. ^ It corresponds to the calculation: projection2015*annual_growth/100.
  4. ^ It corresponds to the formula: LN(2)/LN(growth/100+1), which produces exactly the same result as LOG10(2)/LOG10(growth/100+1).
  5. ^ Includes the disputed territory of Crimea, although it is not internationally recognized as part of Russia.
  6. ^ Note from source: "Excluding the temporarily occupied territories of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city Sevastopol".
  7. ^ The island of Taiwan or the so-called Republic of China (ROC), which has been de facto independent from 1949 and is a partically recognized state, is claimed by the Communist People's Republic of China (PRC) to be one of its provinces.
  8. ^ Special Administrative Region (SAR)Former British colony, it definitely reverted to Chinese sovereignty on July 1, 1997.
  9. ^ It comprises the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, separated between each other by an Israeli land corridor.
  10. ^ Disputed territory, claimed by Serbia.
  11. ^ Special Administrative Region (SAR)Former portuguese colony, it reverted to Chinese sovereignty on December 20, 1999.
  12. ^ Enclave claimed by Spain.
