        Today, about 2/3 of the world’s population lives in Asia, a figure dominated by India and China. Looking at the regional breakdown of the forecasts, we see that by , Africa and Asia will be home to and billion individuals respectively, and will together account for 83% of the world’s population. The statistic shows a projection of the aging population in Southeast Asia for In , the percentage of the population of Singapore above the age of 65 was forecasted to reach percent. The share of population older than 65 in Thailand was forecasted to reach about

        The world’s population is projected to reach billion by , billion by and exceed 11 billion in , according to a United Nations report. China's population will peak at billion in ; India's four decades later at billion. Changes in fertility make long-term projections hard, but by the planet’s population will be.

      Population by region. Six of the Earth's seven continents are permanently inhabited on a large scale. Asia is the most populous continent, with its billion inhabitants accounting for 60% of the world population. The world's two most populated countries, China and India, together constitute about 36% of the world's population. Africa is the second most populated continent, with around Population Growth and Population Density. Namibia is one of the least densely populated countries in the world with just people per square kilometer, which ranks th worldwide.

You can use the ‘relative’ toggle in the chart to see each region’s share of the world population. Here we see that today Africa has just over 17% of the global population; by this is projected to rise to 40%.
