The given tables give information about the population of the world altogether and its region wise distribution in 3 years, 1950, 2000 and 2050.
Overall, the data shows ever increasing trend in world population, of which more than half is confined to the continent Asia also, the data almost never increases in Oceania in all the years.
The number of people were 2.5 billions in 1950, majority of whom (56%) were found in Asia, following which Europe hosted about a quarter of world’s population accounting for 22%. Whereas, the other three regions could together contribute only to a quarter simultaneously. Thereafter, in 2000, with a total of 6 billions, there were increase in the data from Asia (60%), Africa (13%) and Latin America (9%) while, only one-fifth of the entire population resided in all other regions combined.
The projected estimate to 2050 shows that the population will rise by 50% to reach 9 billions while, Asia continues to hold the largest number of people. However, the data is expected to have a significant rise (50%) in Africa from 13% to 20%. Remaining regions will only contribute to one-fifth of world’s population in the same year. In contrast, the population of Oceania never increase, but remains same at about 1% in all the years.
