This entry gives an estimate from the US Bureau of the Census based on statistics from population censuses, vital statistics registration systems, or sample surveys pertaining to the recent past and on assumptions about future trends. The total population presents one overall measure of the potential impact of the country on the world and within its region.  Shown at the top right is the map of Africa – now home to some 1 billion people. These are very rough estimates and outdated as most countries have grown in population.
