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.
The graph illustrates global population data since 1800 and also predicts it further until 2100. At the same time, the bar graph depicts the past and future urban population from 2015 to 2040 while also making a comparison between developed and developing regions.
Overall, it is quite evident that the number of people worldwide would gradually increase to its peak until 2050 and then see a slow decline further. The bar graph indicates that the number of urban settlers in developing regions has been increasing year after year and will always be higher than the developed regions, which continue to remain constant throughout.
During the 1800s, the human count was a mere 1000 million and saw a slow growth until 1950, after which it has seen a sudden spike until 2020 and forecasted to touch 8000 million around 2060. Post-2060, the world might see a decline in its numbers, roughly to be under 7000 million during 2100.
It has been studied that the urban population in the developed region has always been steady from 2015 to 2020 at just around 1200 million people and has been predicted to remain stable until 2040 as well. Although the count was just above 2000 million in 2015, it has been estimated that this number will double by 2040.
