    Default People's Republic of China - 1.3 billion




    As of Nov 2010

    For now, China remains the most populous nation, with 1.34 billion people. In the past decade it added 73.9 million, more than the population of France or Thailand.

    Nonetheless, its growth has slowed dramatically and the population is projected to start shrinking in 2027. By 2050, according to some demographers, it will be smaller than it is today.
    'It's like a train on the track that's still moving but the engine is already off,' says Gu Baochang, a professor of demography at Beijing's Renmin University.

    Default India - 1.2 billion



    As of March 2011

    Across India, the teeming slums, congested streets, and crowded trains and trams are testimony to the country's burgeoning population. Already the second most populous country, with 1.2 billion people, India is expected to overtake China around 2030 when its population soars to an estimated 1.6 billion.

    But even as the numbers increase, the pace of the growth has slowed. Demographers say India's fertility rate -- now 2.6 children per woman -- should fall to 2.1 by 2025 and to 1.8 by 2035.

    More than half of India's population is under 25, and some policy planners say this so-called 'youth dividend' could fuel a productive surge over the next few decades. But population experts caution that the dividend could prove to be a liability without vast social investments.

    'If the young population remains uneducated, unskilled and unemployable, then that dividend would be wasted,' says Shereen Jejeebhoy, a Population Council demographer in New Delhi.

    Default United States - 312.4 million



    As of Oct 15, 2011
    United States has one of the highest population growth rates among industrialized nations. Its fertility rate is just below the replacement rate of 2.1 children per woman, but its population has been increasing by almost 1 percent annually due to immigration. With 312 million people, the U.S. is the third most populous country after China and India.

    Default Brazil - 190.7 million






    As of Aug 2010
    According to demographers, the world's population didn't reach 1 billion until 1804, and it took 123 years to hit the 2 billion mark in 1927. Then the pace accelerated -- 3 billion in 1959, 4 billion in 1974, 5 billion in 1987, 6 billion in 1998.

    Default Pakistan - 177.5 million










    As of OCt 15, 2011
    Looking ahead, the U.N. projects that the world population will reach 8 billion by 2025, 10 billion by 2083. But the numbers could be much higher or lower, depending on such factors as access to birth control, infant mortality rates and average life expectancy -- which has risen from 48 years in 1950 to 69 years today.

    Default Nigeria - 158.4 million



    As of 2010

    Lagos, Nigeria, is expected to overtake Cairo soon as Africa's largest city. Private water vendors there do a brisk business in the many neighborhoods that otherwise lack access to potable water.

    The drone of generators is omnipresent, at offices and markets, in neighborhoods rich and poor, because the power grid doesn't produce enough power. Periodic blackouts extend for hours, days, sometimes weeks.

    Such is daily life in Nigeria's commercial capital, where the population is estimated at 15 million and growing at 6 percent or more each year. Problems with traffic congestion, sanitation and water supplies are staggering; a recent article in UN-Habitat said two-thirds of the residents live in poverty.
    The rest of Nigeria isn't growing as fast -- estimates of its growth rate range from 2 percent to 3.2 percent. But it's already Africa's most populous country with more than 160 million people.

    Default Bangladesh - 151.4 million




    As of Oct 15, 2011

    'Overall, this is not a cause for alarm -- the world has absorbed big gains since 1950,' said Bongaarts, a vice president of the Population Council. But he cautioned that strains are intensifying: rising energy and food prices, environmental stresses, more than 900 million people undernourished.

    'For the rich, it's totally manageable,' Bongaarts said. 'It's the poor, everywhere, who will be hurt the most.'

    In Asian countries this is an occasion to reassess policies that have already slowed once-rapid growth.
