According to a new UN research released Tuesday, an estimated 37% of the world's population,…
8 billion people live on the planet.
According to estimates from the United Nations, the world population reached 8 billion on Friday, marking an important milestone in human evolution.
In a previous statement on Thursday, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres stated, “The milestone is an occasion to celebrate variety and accomplishments while considering humanity’s shared responsibility for the planet.”
The world’s population is anticipated to continue expanding despite a slower growth rate, thanks to advancements in nutrition, personal cleanliness, medicine, and public health.
The UN stated that this is evidence that the global population’s overall growth rate is slowing. “While it took the global population 12 years to increase from 7 to 8 billion, it will take around 15 years — until 2037 — for it to reach 9 billion.”
According to UN estimates, India will surpass China as the world’s most populous nation in 2023.
More than half of the projected growth in the global population by 2050 will be accounted for by eight nations: Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Egypt, Ethiopia, India, Nigeria, Pakistan, and the African nation of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
A rise of nearly nine years since 1990 brought the average life expectancy at birth to 72.8 years in 2019. It is predicted that additional mortality decreases would result in an average worldwide lifespan of 77.2 years in 2050.
