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. ^ It not only refers to the population of Metropolitan France but it aso includes the overseas departments of French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Mayotte, and Réunion, as well as the overseas collectivity of Saint Martin, which all belong to the European Union. The following overseas collectivities are not included, as they do not belong to the European Union: French Polynesia, New Caledonia, Saint-Barthélemy, Saint Pierre and Miquelon, and Wallis and Futuna.
