Michael,
World Bank data might also be of use, for example:

-- population of USA in 1960:
http://api.worldbank.org/countries/usa/indicators/SP.POP.TOTL?date=1960

-- population of Ukraine in 1991-2010
http://api.worldbank.org/countries/ukr/indicators/SP.POP.TOTL?date=1991:2010

-- female population of Australia as percent of male population in 1961-2010
http://api.worldbank.org/countries/aus/indicators/SP.POP.TOTL.FE.ZS?date=1961:2010

etc.

Dictionary of indicators and country codes are available from:
data.worldbank.org

API description is here:

Best, Sergiy Radyakin
