India Will Become The World’s Most Populous Country This Year Leaving Behind China Report Claims
India Population: India will become the most populous country in the world this year. We are not saying this, but a report by Washington-based think tank Pew Research Center has claimed so. According to the report, this year India will overtake China, which is the most populous country since 1950. It has also been said in the report that the United Nations expects that India will overtake China in the month of April itself.
However, from the analysis of the data, it seems that even before April, India will overtake China. Pew Research Center has mentioned key facts about India’s population and its projected changes in the coming decades after analyzing data from the United Nations and other sources.
India has the largest youth population
According to the Research Center, India’s population has increased by more than a billion people since 1950. People under the age of 25 make up more than 40 percent of India’s population. Along with India, China and America are also in the most populous category, but the interesting thing is that both these countries have more old population. According to the latest figures, the population of China is 141.24 crores, while the population of India is 140.76 crores.
India ahead of China-America in fertility rate
The fertility rate in India is higher than that of China and the US, but this rate has declined rapidly in recent decades. Let us tell you that the fertility rate varies between communities and states in India. According to the data, Indian women in urban areas have their first child 1.5 years later than women in rural areas. While India’s infant mortality rate has decreased by 70 percent in the last three decades, it is still high by regional and international standards.
