This is harmonized list of population estimates for the year 2000. For a listing with more recent estimates, see List of countries by population.
Map of countries by population for the year 2000 (U.N. source)

This is a list of countries by population in 2000. It is a list of countries in the world by population in the exact beginning of the year 2000.

Because the table contains data only for the 230 nations and territories at the start of 2000, there are no entries for national regions declared later in 2000 or subsequent years.

This list adopts definitions of "country" on a case by case basis. The "United Kingdom" is considered as a single "sovereign state" while "constituent countries" of the "Netherlands" are regarded separately.
