I try to get the population of every country with an API, but I looked at the World Bank Open Data but I can't find just the population of each country.

I looked, and I find lots and lots of data about population with specific criteria like *

Population in urban agglomerations of more than one million is the country's population living in metropolitan areas that in 2018 had a population of more than one million people

But I can't find just the population per country.

And here it is for the United States, Mexico, and Brazil at the same time:


From the above links you can simply remove the Country and type in a new one to generate the result for Total Population.

  • These are the data that I want but is there a way to get them with an API ?
