The graphs below provide information on global population figures and figures for urban populations in different world regions.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
» Write at least 150 words.
The given illustrations show information on the world population from 1800 to 2100 (with projection) and show the distribution of this population in developed and developing regions.
According to the first graph, from 1800 to 1920, the global population was less than 2000 million with slight increase. But after 1940, this population boomed and reached to 6000 million in the year 2000. The graph shows the projection that this rapid growth o population would continue till 2050 when the population would reach to over 8000 million. But after that the global population will decrease and will fall to around 6000 million in the year 2100 according to the projection. According to the second graph, around 1200 million of population will live in developed countries and their population would remain almost same from 2015 to 2040. On the contrary, the population of the developing country will keep increasing and would reach to 4000 millions in 2040 compared to the initial population of 2100 million in 2015.
In summary, the global population will keep on increasing till 2050 and this increase would be more on developing regions than the developed regions. After 2050, it is projected that the total population of the world will be decreasing.
