Particulars:
Due to the use of several sources the estimates differ quite a lot. There have been clearly some overnumeration since 1950.
Source "CIA World fact book" states an estimated population for mid-year 2000 of 2,005,222.
The projected population figures beyond the year 2000 are based on the higher variant of the UN estimates from 1990.
