India Population Might Exceed China Soon – UN

According to UN data, India will surpass China as the world’s most populated nation next year, with a population of 1.4 billion.

There will be 8 billion people on the earth by November.

However, population growth is not as quick as it once was.

The UN predicts a peak of about 10.4 billion people sometime in the 2080s, though some demographers think it could happen even sooner. It is currently growing at its slowest rate since 1950.

But there are disparities in the growth of the global population.

In just eight countries—the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Egypt, Ethiopia, India, Nigeria, Pakistan, the Philippines, and Tanzania—will more than half of the growth that we will experience over the next 30 years takes place.

At the same time, population decrease is already being observed in some of the most advanced economies in the world, as fertility rates fall below the “replacement rate” of 2.1 children per woman. The research predicts population declines of at least 1% in 61 nations by 2050.

China, which has one of the lowest fertility rates in the world (1.15 children per woman), has declared that its population decline will begin far sooner than previously anticipated, beginning next year. Despite the nation’s abandonment of its one-child policy and the introduction of incentives for couples to have two or more children, this nevertheless holds.

India will very probably surpass China as the world’s most populous nation as its population continues to rise.

Worldwide, even in many of the nations where the population is growing, fertility rates are declining. That’s because more individuals are having children as older generations spread out, even though they’re individually having fewer kids than their parents did.

Growth is also primarily attributed to advances in science and medicine, which have resulted in more children and adults living into old age. The average life expectancy worldwide will be roughly 77.2 years by 2050 if the current trend holds.

But because of this pattern, it is expected that by 2050, 16% of the world’s population would be 65 years of age or older, up from 10% this year. Once more, there will be an uneven distribution, with some nations in East Asia and Western Europe already experiencing higher extremes in aging.
