Administrative Population Edits and Notes:
The UN World Population Prospects does not report separate Populations for Mayotte and Comoros. As such, the UN estimates reported for Mayotte are the UN projection for the total of the two, multiplied by the ratio of the Mayotte NSO extrapolated population to the total NSO extrapolated population for the two for the given year.
