The line graph depicts the projected population growth of China and India. The X axis depicts the year and Y axis depicts the population in billions.
The dotted line depicts the trend for China whereas the solid line depicts the population for India.
In the initial phase of 1990 there was a huge difference in the population of India and China. In the subsequent years both the countries saw a steady increase in the population. Though India had a maximum of 1.6 billion populations compared to 1.45 billion of China. There was also an interesting trend in the increase of China's population. It is projected that it will start declining after 2030 after a steady increase till the same year.
The two lines depicting the population of both the countries intersect each other in 2030 which implies that the population remained same during this year. Lowest population that India and China encountered was in 1990 though the number was much higher for China. Highest population will be noticed in 2050 for India and 2030 for China.
Overall India saw a more serious increase in population and trends show that it will have difficulty in controlling it whereas China will show a positive trend after 2030 by showing a decline in population. Thus India must be learning this population control method from the neighboring country.
