United’s shocking statement on world population
In a few days, the world population will increase to 8 billion
The United Nations has estimated the age of people
The United Nations. The world population will reach 8 billion next week. The UN said it would be a milestone for humanity. The United Nations Population Department has stated that the population will increase in the coming decades. By 2050, the average age of a person will increase to 77.2 years.
The world population in 1950 was 2.5 billion, which will more than triple now. The United Nations says that people’s lives will increase and people will enter reproductive age. In this way, the population will be in line with United Nations estimates. The United Nations estimates that the world’s population will reach 8.5 billion by 2030.
World population is estimated to reach 9.7 billion by 2050 and 10.4 billion by 2080. Rachel Snow of the United Nations Population Fund said that after peaking in 1960, it had been a sudden decline in world population. In 2020, it was less than one percent. By 2050, this figure could drop to 0.5% due to declining fertility rates. In 2021, the average lifetime fertility rate for a woman was 2.3%. It has fallen by 5% since 1950. According to United Nations estimates, by 2050 the average fertility rate for a woman’s lifetime will be 2.1.
The average age of a person will be 77.2 years in 2050
The peculiarity is that the age of people should also increase in the midst of all this. The average age of a person in 2019 was 77.2 years old, 9 years older than in 1990. The United Nations estimates that in 2050 the average age of a person will be 77.2 years old . In this way, along with the decline in the fertility rate, the age of people will increase by 10% from the age of 65 in 2022 and by 2050 it will increase by 16%. This will have a direct impact on workers and the national pension system.
There will be a growth of the wild population in these countries
However, there will also be large regional disparities as the world’s population grows. For example, the United Nations estimates that by 2050, more than half of population growth will come from just 8 countries. These will include population growth in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Egypt, Ethiopia, India, Nigeria, Pakistan, the Philippines and Tanzania.
