Particulars:
Figures in italic are estimates, those prior to 1980 are from source "KB".
Another problem in the population data is the possible inclusion of a part of the former British Cameroons in the figures before 1960.
In recent years the raptures are caused by the unreliability of the data provided by the source WB.
