The table depicts information about the world population in billions but percentage wise for regions in the years 1950 and 2000 and also shows an estimated population for 2050.
Overall, it can be seen clearly that world population has followed a upward trend for the last 50 years and will adopt the same trend of increment in the next fifty years. Asia region has remained the most densely populated area while Oceania region, the least populated area.
Africa remained the only region which saw a continuous improvement of 9% in 1950 and 13% in 2000 and will go up till 20% in 2050. More than half of the world population resided in Asia i.e,56% in 1950 and remained the largest contributor for the year 2000 at 60% but will see a decline of just 1% in 2050. Europe and North America both followed a declining pattern throughout the periods. Europe showed a steady decline of 10% in 2000 from 22% to12% and in 2050, will decrease by 5% from 12% to 7%.
