The mid-2009 estimate for total population was 156,050,883 which ranksBangladesh 7th in the world (CIA).
Naturally there is some uncertainty about the population, especially in adeveloping country such as Bangladesh with high illiteracy and a large rural population. For instance, in 2005 there was not a consensus whether Bangladesh or Russia hada larger population. The UN's ESA ranked Russia 7th in the world and Bangladesh 8th. However, the CIA World Factbook ranked Bangladesh 7th and Russia 8th in the same year. The point is now moot as the population of Russia is in decline while that of Bangladeshis growing.
The baseline for population studies on Bangladesh is the officialcensus which is conducted every 10 years, the last being in 2011.
