To start with, below is one on absolute population numbers. This time series data goes all the way back to year 1960. Choose any country of interest to you. Also, don't forget to browse all the other graphs in this category.
A slightly technical explanation of an otherwise commonplace term that 'Population' is, is in order. Total population you see below is based on the de facto definition of population, which counts all residents regardless of legal status or citizenship--except for refugees not permanently settled in the country of asylum, who are generally considered part of the population of their country of origin. The values shown are midyear estimates. (Data Source: World Bank)
