Total Population by Country, 1950, 2000, 2015, 2025, 2050

Webmaster's note: I created this page from a table published in March 2001 in PDF format by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). I entered it into a spreadsheet and rearranged it in descending order by 2050 population. You can also download the spreadsheed itself.
