I'd like to see this as a percentage increase of the population. Basically, it's just a list of the most populated countries in the world with a few exceptions. But if this was percentage of population, it would be much more challenging. Also, technically wouldn't South Sudan be in the 2010s since it gained independence in 2011? That means that it went from 0 population to over 11 million? :-)

Read the second caveat - I assume that also means it takes the current southern Sudan's population as it was in 2010, and it counted the northern half for every other decade.

As Buck2017 added, it is more or less a list of the most populated countries. It would be better if it had the % of each decade.
