Figures used in this chart are based on the most recent estimate or projection by the national census authority where available and usually rounded off. Because the compiled figures are not collected at the same time in every country, or at the same level of accuracy, the resulting numerical comparisons may result in misleading conclusions. Further, the addition of all countries may not equal the world total.
