- 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 function|exponential]k] formula shown on the List of countries by past and future population article.

- It corresponds to the following formula: projection2013/projection2012x100-100.
- It corresponds to the calculation: projection2013*annual_growth/100.
- It corresponds to the formula: LN(2)/LN(growth/100+1), which produces exactly the same result as LOG10(2)/LOG10(growth/100+1).
