Animation: How the Demographics of China and India are Diverging. Within popular discourse, especially in the West, the profiles of China and India have become inextricably linked.

Animation: How the Demographics of China and India are Diverging

Aside from their massive populations and geographical proximity in Asia, the two nations also have deep cultural histories and traditions, growing amounts of influence on the world stage, and burgeoning middle classes. China and India combine to be home to one-third of the world’s megacities, and they even had identical real GDP growth rates of 6.1% in 2019, based on early estimates by the IMF.

Diverging Demographics But aside from the obvious differences in their political regimes, the two populous nations have also diverged in another way: demographics. As seen in today’s animation, which comes from AnimateData and leverages data from the United Nations, the two countries are expected to have very different demographic compositions over time as their populations age. The easiest way to see this is through a macro lens: Populations of China and India (1950-2100)

Demographic Transition Model (DTM) Ennuste: Pekingin papat ja Pihtiputaan mummot mullistavat maailmantalouden. Yksi tärkeimmistä megatrendeistä, joka tulevaisuusskenaariossa nostetaan esiin, on väestön ikääntyminen.

Euroopan väestön ikääntyminen on puhuttanut jo pitkään, mutta varsinainen pommi piilee Kiinassa. Nuori työikäinen väestö löytyy jatkossa ennen kaikkea Intiasta ja Afrikasta. Muutoksilla on mullistavia vaikutuksia maailmantalouteen, ja ne ovat aivan oven takana. Väestön kasvu hidastuu ja pysähtyy Maailman väestönkasvu on ollut viime vuosikymmeninä häkellyttävän nopeaa. Maapallon väestön uskotaan kasvavan noin 9,5–11 miljardiin, suunnilleen vuosien 2040–2050 paikkeilla. Tärkein syy kasvun hidastumiseen on se, että niin sanottu hedelmällisyys eli sen montako lasta synnytysikäinen nainen keskimäärin synnyttää, on laskenut maailmanlaajuisesti hyvin nopeasti, noin 2,4:n lapseen.

China and India may have similar populations today, but they have very different demographic destinies.

Animation: Population Pyramids of the 10 Most Populous Countries

While China should see its population fall in the coming decades, India projects to be the most populous country in 2050 by a long shot. By that time, India will have up to 1.7 billion people – and Mumbai will be the largest megacity in the world with upwards of 42 million people. Comparing Population Pyramids These kind of future trends are not evident from the base population figures alone, but they become much clearer when we look at the population pyramids of countries instead. Today’s animated chart comes from, and it shows a breakdown for each of the 10 most populous countries in the world: A population pyramid, which shows the distribution of a population in terms of age group and sex, can help us to see things like: How many people are being born?

World Population Clock: 7.5 Billion People

View the full tabulated data. At the dawn of agriculture, about 8000 B.C., the population of the world was approximately 5 million. Over the 8,000-year period up to 1 A.D. it grew to 200 million (some estimate 300 million or even 600, suggesting how imprecise population estimates of early historical periods can be), with a growth rate of under 0.05% per year. A tremendous change occurred with the industrial revolution: whereas it had taken all of human history until around 1800 for world population to reach one billion, the second billion was achieved in only 130 years (1930), the third billion in 30 years (1960), the fourth billion in 15 years (1974), and the fifth billion in only 13 years (1987).
