Map of countries by population for the year 2007

This is a list of countries by population. The list includes independent countriesand inhabited dependent territories based on the ISO standard ISO 3166-1. Also given, as a percentage, is each country’s population compared to the population of the world, which is currently 6,879,700,000.[1]

Areas that form integral parts of sovereign states, such as the countries of the United Kingdom, are counted as part of the sovereign states concerned. Not included are other entities, such as the European Union,[2] that are not sovereign states, and dependent territories that do not have permanent populations, such asvarious countries’ claims to Antarctica.n1

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. Where national data is unavailable, figures are based on the 2010 estimate by the Population Division of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs.[3] 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.

Sovereign states are listed in bold text and dependent territories in italic. States listed that do not have general recognition are in bold and italic.

For a graphical version of this list, see list of countries by population (graphical). See also list of countries and dependencies by population density and the list of regional organizations by population.

The Harvest Fields
Statistics – 2010 edition
Compiled by Stephen Ross
Therefore said He unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He would send forth labourers into His harvest.  Luke 10:2 

Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.  John 4:35

Now then we are ambassadors for Christ.  2 Corinthians 5:20a

Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.  Mark 16:15b

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  John 3:16

And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.  1 John 4:14

*2010 estimates by Demographia.com which defines an urban                        area (urbanized area agglomeration or urban centre) as a               continuously built up landmass of urban development containing                        a high population density, without regard for administrative             boundaries (i.e. municipality, city or commune) or a labor market                 (i.e. metropolitan area). Population figures for the world’s largest                cities differ from one source to another because of the different            concepts used  (i.e. urban areas, urban agglomerations,                    metropolitan areas, etc.)
