WORLD MOST POPULATED COUNTRIES

The world population continues to grow, and currently, there are 7.7 billion people living on our planet.

The low fertility rate in developed countries is likely to continue, and for developing nations the population growth is likely to increase until the middle and lower classes achieve a better standard of living, especially in Africa, which is the fastest-growing continent at the moment.

Top 3 most populated countries

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA: The USA is a big country in every aspect, they are the most powerful and rich country in the world, so it might not come as a surprise that it’s also one of the most populated countries in the world with 327 million people living in the United States of America.

INDIA: India is another country where the population is rising quickly, and in a couple of years, India is expected to overtake the position as the most populous country in the world. Right now, there are 1.3 billion people living in India, and although the poor and middle class improve their living standards each year, there is no expectation that the population will decrease, quite the opposite as the population is aging and the fertility rate continues to rise.

CHINA: The most populated country in the world is China with more than 1.4 billion people. It’s a massive country where the economy has developed quickly for the last decades. China’s population is equal to 20% of the Earth’s total population, and beyond the Chinese people actually residing within the country, there are many Chinese people living across the globe as well.
