Scientists have named a country that will overtake China in terms of population.

India may surpass China in terms of population this year, according to the World Population Review, an independent organization that handles population censuses and demographics.


According to the company’s estimates, 1,422,708,244 people now live in India, and 1,425,831,221 people live in China.

“In terms of population growth in individual countries, India is projected to surpass China as the most populous country in the world sometime in 2023, when China’s annual growth rate will be between minus 0.1% and minus 0.3%, in while India’s growth rate will be between 0.69% and 0.92%,” the study says.


At the same time, in 2023, the population of India, according to scientists, will reach about 1.428 billion people – compared with 1.425 billion inhabitants of China.

As stated in the UN, the population of the Earth last year increased to eight billion people, and such growth dynamics is provided by indicators of Asian countries. In 2023, it is expected that India’s share of the total growth will only increase, and by 2037, another billion people will be added to the planet.
