Trends in World Population
Kental Travel: It took hundreds of thousands of years for the world population to reach 1 billion, and then it multiplied sevenfold in just over 200 years. In 2011, the world population reached approximately 7 billion, and by 2021, it reached 7.9 billion. It is projected to reach around 8.5 billion by 2030, 9.7 billion by 2050, and 10.9 billion by 2100.
Upward population growth trends have wide-ranging implications for economic development, employment, income distribution, poverty, and social support. They also impact universal access to healthcare, education, housing, sanitation, water, food, and energy. To better address the needs of individuals sustainably, policymakers need to know how many people are living on Earth, where they are, their age, and how many people will come after them.
