Source: National Population Commission of Nigeria (web), National Bureau of Statistics (web).

Explanation: The 2015 population projection assumes the same rate of growth for all LGAs within a state. The undercount of the 1991 census is estimated to be about 25 million. All population figures for Nigeria show high error rates; census results are disputed.
