World population basically implies to the total number of living humans on earth which in present records tolls up to more than 7 billion with figures still soaring high on the graph every second on account of every birth taking place worldwide every minute. It is one of the most decisive factors of consideration that is essential for a statistical appraisal of official population record so that economists can chalk out future plans and strategies to meet the upcoming challenges which will be posed in every country where a balance between the population and the resources is imperative for a condition of development and survival.
The rise in the world population took its steep rise after the end of the Great Famine and Black Death in 1350; whereby the official record figured around 370 million- which in contrast to the current rate of over 7 billion is shocking and requires immediate measures of being subdued.
World population is on the rise due to several reasons whereby in the backward and developing nations there is the lack awareness and incentives, ignorance towards family planning and cultural traditions to have large families without taking into factors the chances of survival and standard in proportion to the level income of individual supporting the family. Also better standards of contemporary living and modern medical treatments have reduced the death rate; which has given greater hopes to human existence. According to the UN projections; the population rate is to go unbridled rate of 10.9 billion by the year 2050.
This escalating prediction, which is not far from being a practical reality and definitely raises concerns over the effects it will bear on environment, food and energy resources and most importantly the life and standard of humans; especially in some of the most densely populated countries of the world such as china, India , USA, Indonesia, brazil, Pakistan, Nigeria, Bangladesh etc.
The officially collected current world population chart evinces towards a rapid increase in population since the beginning of the industrial revolution; whereby the chronicle figures show that by 1800 world population was 1 billion and rose to 2 billion in over 130 year. The figure of world population reached 3 million in less than 30 years and 4 million in 15 years.
This clearing shows the striking rate of birth rates and survival; whereby, alone in the 20th century world population has grown from 1.65 billion to 6 billion. If the current alarming world population growth rate is not curtailed or abated it may hold dire consequences for humanity in the long run whereby the financial and natural resources may fall short in demand of the number of humans in need. Such a condition will not only lead to impoverishment but also tend to deteriorate the standard of living of every man; especially in developing and backward countries and also to global world crisis of famine.[codepeople-post-map]
