List of countries by past and future population

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This article shows the (absolute) population of nearly all the political countries and dependencies in the world from 1950 to 2050. This one-century timespan provides a broad perspective on demographic change across the globe. According to these estimates, it can be seen that the United States surpassed the combined population of the fifteen republics of the former Soviet Union around the year 2003, and that by 2025 India is projected to overtake China as the world's most populous country.

Introduction[edit]

The starting year of 1950 is convenient, as it shows the world population growing and recovering from the great demographic bleeding of some 50-70 million deaths, that had mainly taken place in the Eastern Front of World War II.

The figures shown here have been entirely taken (and processed) from the International Data Base (IDB) Division of the United States Census Bureau. Every individual value has been automatically rounded to the nearest thousand, to assure data coherence, particularly when adding up (sub)totals. Although data from specific statistical offices may be more accurate, the information provided here has the advantage of being homogeneous.

Population estimates, as long as they are based on recent censuses, can be more easily projected into the near future than many macroeconomic indicators, such as GDPs, which are much more sensitive to political and/or economic crises. This means that it is more accurate to make demographic estimates for the next five (or even ten) years than trying to calculate the probable evolution of a GDP through the same time period (besides, in this latter case, deflacting has to be taken into account to compensate or make up for the distortion caused by inflation).

However, no projected population figures can be considered exact. In the IDB's particular case, figures beyond the years 2020-2025 should be taken with caution, as the census way towards those years has yet to be paved. Thus, from a present-day point of view, it is as if a demographer was looking through a kind of cloudy glass [1] or misty window, and more or less precise “guesstimates” are the only realistic present-day available possibilities.

To make things more complicated, not all countries carry out censuses on a regular basis, especially some of the poorer, faster-growing sub-Saharan African nations (whose evolution may be more interesting, from a demographer's point of view, than the stagnated populations of countries like Germany or Italy). For instance, it is difficult to know real present-day size of the population of Angola, as that country has not held a census since 1970 (prior to its post-colonial civil war, that broke out in 1975, with its toll of dead people and refugees). As it is widely known in the world of demographics (from historical empirical data), countries like those (along with other nations like Algeria, Bangladesh, Egypt, India, and Pakistan) -with their low family planning- tend to grow much faster than the aging European nations or Japan. In general, although the former countries may slow down their respective demographic growths rates in the decades to come, it is unlikely that they will stabilize their respective populations by 2050, as predicted by the IDB data in some cases; they may also stay near the relatively high average level of 1.5% increase per year. Something similar can be said about China, whose population is still growing at an absolute rate of some 10 million additional inhabitants per year, despite its government’s efforts to stabilize it, through its one child per couple policy.

On the other hand, some other countries, like the small Asian State of Bhutan, have only recently had a thorough census for the first time: In Bhutan's case in particular, before its national 2005 population survey,[2][3][4] the IDB showed an estimated 2+ million figure, which was silently reduced in a drastic way, after the new census results were finally included in its database.

Besides, the IDB usually takes some time before including new data, as it happened in the case of Indonesia. That is why that country was reported by the IDB to have an inflated population of some 242 million by mid-2005, because it had not still processed the final results of the eventually moderate 2000 Indonesian census.[5][6][7][8] A similar discrepancy has also occurred with the relatively recent Ethiopian 2007 census,[9][10] that resulted in "only" 73,918,505 inhabitants (preliminary figure).

The largest absolute potential discrepancies are naturally related to the most populous nations. However, smaller states, such as Tuvalu, can have large relative discrepancies. For instance, the 2002 census in that Oceanian island, which gave a final population of 9,561[11] shows that IDB estimates can be significantly off.

Preliminary notes[edit]

The national 1 July, mid-year population estimates (usually based on past national censuses) supplied in these tables are given in thousands.

The table columns can be sorted by clicking on their respective heading.

The retrospective figures assume the present-day names and world political division, for instance, providing data for each of the 15 republics of the former Soviet Union, as if they had already been independent by 1950, and not since the end of 1991, as they really are. An inverse criterion corresponds to Germany, forcefully divided since the end of the Second World War and eventually reunified since October 3, 1990.

Other issues concerning some countries or territories are the following ones:

  • Hong Kong Macau The former British colony of Hong Kong and former Portuguese colony of Macau continue to have their own figures, even though they were returned to Chinese sovereignty in 1997 and 1999 respectively. The Chinese government considers both present-day Special Administrative Regions (SARs) as separate entities from a statistical point of view, and their censuses are still carried out on different dates from the ones in mainland China.
  • Serbia The Serbia population only refers to that of the “residual” Yugoslav republic under that name, after secession of Montenegro (Crna Gora) and, more recently, Kosovo (this latter one was recognized as an independent state by the United States government on 18 February 2008, and so the US Census Bureau reflects the resulting demographic change; nevertheless, many countries have not recognized this declaration of independence).

Finally, the Eastern and Western Europe subtotals follow the former Cold War's Iron Curtain division of Europe.

Formulas used to calculate demographic growth[edit]

To the right of each year column (except for the initial 1950 one), a percentage figure is shown, corresponding to the average annual growth for each previous five-year period. Thus, the figures after the 1960 column calculates the percentage for the 1955-60 period, the ones after the 1980 one, the value for 1975-80, and so on.

The formulas used to carry out these last calculations, are the standard ones, used both by the United Nations Statistics Division and by National Census Offices worldwide. They correspond to the exponential geometrical growth, and have the following general form: \left ( \sqrt[y_f-y_i]{\frac{p_f}{p_i}} -1 \right ) \times 100, where p_i and p_f stand for the initial and final population, respectively, within a stated time period. The same criteria applies to y_i and y_f, the two variables indicating the two years involved. In terms of natural logarithms, both formulas can be expressed as follows: \left ( e^{\frac{ln(p_f / p_i)}{(y_f - y_i)}} - 1 \right ) \times 100. For the practical purposes of the calculations shown here, where five-year periods are involved, we can simplify the formulas, leaving them like this: \left ( \sqrt[5]{\frac{p_f}{p_i}} -1 \right ) \times 100 and \left (e^{\frac{ln(p_f/p_i)}{5}}-1 \right ) \times 100
