This a list of independent countries by population. Areas that form integral parts of sovereign states, such as the countries of the British Empire, are counted as part of the sovereign states concerned. Not included are other entities that are not sovereign states.

Figures used in this chart are based on the most recent estimate or projections by the national census authority where available, and are usually rounded off. Where updated national data are not available, figures are based on the 2012 estimates by the Population Division of the League of Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs. 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 create misleading conclusions. Furthermore, the addition of figures from all countries may not equal the world total.
