(KRQE) — The final game of the 2018 FIFA World cup is on July 15. 

Have you been paying attention to the population figures listed during each game of the tournament?

The Census Bureau joined this year’s World Cup fun and created a World Cup Population Bracketology game. 

The game uses data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s International Database. It randomly generates an elimination bracket and features the 32 countries who were involved in this year’s tournament. 

The goal of the game is to select the country with the higher population in each of the matchups. 

 When you’ve completed the bracket, you can regenerate new matchups.
