List of Countries by Population
1939 1989 2000

This is a list of countries by population in 1989, providing an overview of the world population before the fall of the Iron Curtain.

Data is taken from the annual dictionary[1] which appeared in late 1990. While population data is almost exclusively dated 1989, political developments before the summer of 1990 are taken into account, including Yemeni unification and Namibian independence but not German reunification which was finalised only in October.

The numbers given in "Aktuell '91" are fully compatible with the data given by the U.S. Census Bureau,[2] where they can be compared, as the US Census Data refers to modern national borders instead of 1989 borders. Similar remarks apply to 1990 estimates in the List of countries by past and future population which also only apply to modern-day national borders. See also Soviet Census (1989) and 1990 United States Census for comparison.
