Europe Countries Population 1600-2022 | Kingdoms, Empires, Republics | Napoleonic Wars, WW1, WW2

In this video we compare the population of European countries and the surrounding area for the last 4 centuries that have seen great changes in the size and composition. Europe today has eight times the amount of people it did just 400 years ago. This data series focuses on what the largest polities were throughout recent history. Given the challenges of demography, the visualization begins in 1600 and details the numerous changes to population within the interim period.
Sources: A wide variety of sources were employed in order to project the data. Tacitus.nu, Penguin Atlas of Recent History, Angus Maddison project, various academic studies, and Eurostat provided most of the information. The population of colonies and holdings outside of Europe are excluded with the exception of the Russian and Ottoman Empires. Given the numerous changes in borders, the continental total can sometimes be erratic, shifting downwards or upwards for seemingly no reason. Generally, this is because various other nations are either no longer being recorded or diverging sources, not necessarily due to massive casualties.
Obviously no data set is perfect, especially on matters so speculative such as population growth in the 1600s and 1700s, but I have put in my best effort. Please comment if you notice any serious errors so they can be rectified.
