India to overtake China as the world’s most populous country by mid-2023, U.N. data
India’s population is estimated to be 1.4286 billion, compared to China’s 1.4257 billion, according to the UNFPA’s “State of the World Population Report, 2023” demographic statistics. With an expected population of 340 million, the United States stands in a distant third.
India is on its way to become the world’s most populous country, overtaking China with almost 3 million more people in the middle of this year, data released on Wednesday by the United Nations showed.
India’s population is estimated to be 1.4286 billion, compared to China’s 1.4257 billion, according to the UNFPA’s “State of the World Population Report, 2023” demographic data.
The United States is a distant third, with an estimated population of 340 million, the data showed. The data reflects information available as of Feb. 2023, the report said.
India is expected to surpass China this month, according to population experts using previous U.N. figures. However, the most recent report from the international organisation did not include a timeframe for when the shift will take place.
U.N. population authorities have said that it is not possible to set an exact date owing to “uncertainty” about the data coming out of China and India, particularly given that India’s previous census was performed in 2011 and that country’s upcoming census, which was scheduled for 2021 but has been delayed due to the epidemic.
Although the two Asian superpowers will make up more than one-third of the estimated world population of 8.045 billion, China’s population growth has been slower than India’s, and vice versa.
The whole world and China’s economy will be significantly impacted by the country’s population fall, which occurred last year for the first time in six decades.
India’s annual population growth has averaged 1.2% since 2011, compared with 1.7% in the 10 years previously, according to government data.
According to Andrea Wojnar, a representative for UNFPA India, “the Indian survey findings suggest that population anxieties have seeped into large portions of the general public.”
“However, population figures shouldn’t be worrying or cause worry. If individual rights and preferences are maintained, they should be viewed as a sign of growth, development, and ambitions, she said.
