World Population Day Facts
- More than half of the world’s population lives in just five countries: China, India, Brazil, Russia, and the United States of America.
- Every day, the world population grows by about 100,000 people. This means that the world population will reach 9 billion by the end of this year.
- By 2050, the population will be more than 11 billion. If we don’t do anything to reduce population growth, the world will be overcrowded and there won’t be enough resources for everyone.
- The world population has reached 7 billion people, and is forecast to reach 9.7 billion by 2050.
- Rapid population growth is placing increased pressure on resources, driving up costs for food, energy, and water supplies.
- There are wide disparities in world population growth rates, with the majority of countries experiencing a decline in birth rates over the past two decades.
- Improved reproductive health and access to contraception are essential to achieve sustainable population growth.
- The top five countries with the most population are China, India, USA, Brazil, and Nigeria.
- The population growth rate is decreasing in many countries, but it is increasing in some others such as Nigeria and Pakistan.
- The global population is projected to reach 11 billion by 2100.
- There are more women in the world than ever before and they are having more children, but the gap between male and female populations is still large.
- Over half of the world’s population lives in countries where less than 50% of the workforce is employed in productive sectors, which puts a huge strain on resources and contributes to inequality.
- There are many ways to help address global population growth and inequality, including through education, contraception, and reproductive health services.
- The number of people living in poverty has also been on the rise over the past few decades.
- There are more people living in developing countries than in developed countries.
- In 2013, more than one-quarter of the world’s population lived in cities.
- The share of women in the world’s population is growing faster than the share of men, and this is projected to continue into the future.
- In many parts of the world, there are still disparities in terms of access to education and health care, which leads to poorer reproductive health for women.
- In order to address these disparities and ensure that all people have the opportunities to enjoy full reproductive health, it is essential that we focus on girls and women from an early age. Due to new births and increased life expectancy, the aging population is increasing three percent per year.
- Due to new births and increased life expectancy, the aging population is increasing three percent per year.
How many people are there on Earth?
There are over 7.5 billion people on Earth, which is more than ever before. The population has been growing at an alarming rate, and is expected to reach 11 billion by the end of the century.
One of the ways that the population has been growing is through migration. Approximately 251 million people moved around the world in 2017, which is about a third of all international migrants. This number is set to increase in the future, as more and more people are looking for opportunities abroad.
Another way that the population has been growing is through births. Over 2.7 billion babies were born worldwide in 2017, which was a record high. This number shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon, as fertility rates are slowly but steadily declining around the world.

3. Population density is highest in Asia.
4. Population density is highest in Europe.
5. Population density is highest in North America.
6. Population density is highest in South America.
7. Population density is highest in Oceania.

Population by Country
1. The world population is increasing rapidly and is projected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050.
2. The population in China will account for about half of the world’s growth during this period.
3. India is also expected to have a large population growth rate, as is Nigeria.
4. The United States will have the lowest population growth rate of all countries, while Europe will have the highest.
5. Almost every country in the world is experiencing population growth, with only a few exceptions.
1. China’s population is now more than 1.37 billion people, making it the world’s most populous country.
2. India’s population is now more than 1.3 billion people, making it the second most populous country in the world.
3. The United States has the third largest population in the world, with over 300 million people.
4. Nigeria has the fourth largest population in the world, with over 180 million people.
5. Brazil has the fifth largest population in the world, with over 190 million people.
1. On World Population Day, it is important to remember that there are over 7 billion people on Earth and India is the most populous country in the world. With over 1.3 billion people, India is also the second most populous country in the world.
2. India’s population growth is staggering. Between 2000 and 2010, India’s population grew by over 30 percent, which makes it the fastest-growing country in the world. This growth is largely due to increases in fertility rates and a larger number of women working outside of the home.
3. In terms of age, India has a large population of young people. Almost half of India’s population is below the age of 25, which is a significantly higher percentage than any other country in the world. This influx of young people will have major impacts on Indian society and economy in the years to come.
United States’ Population
The United States is the most populous country in the world. As of 2019, the United States had a population of over 309 million people. The United States is also the fastest-growing country in the world. The population of the United States is projected to exceed 400 million by 2027.
The growth of the United States’ population is due in part to its high birth rate. The fertility rate in the United States is 2.1 children per woman, which is higher than any other country in the world. In addition, the United States has a large immigrant population. As of 2019, more than 43 percent of the US population was born outside of the United States.
The growth of the US population has had some negative consequences. For example, the US has a huge housing crisis. The US housing market is unable to accommodate all of the people who want to live in it. This has led to prices for homes soaring and homelessness becoming an epidemic.
On World Population Day, we should all take a moment to reflect on the amazing progress that has been made in reducing world population. In 1950, there were over two billion people on the planet; by 2050, that number had decreased by more than half – to just over one billion people. It is truly astounding to see the power of our collective actions, and it is important that we continue making strides in this direction in order for humanity to reach its ultimate potential.
