By Earth graph, World Population is the total number of people living on earth was estimated to be 7.7 billion in 2020, Out of which China population constitutes to 18.5%, secondly India Population by 17.9%, United States Population by 4.3%, Indonesia by 3.5% and Brazil by 2.8%. Scientists predict the total human history was 200,000 to 300,000 years, i.e, Humans were early traced between 198,000 B.C - 298,000 B.C. In Continent wise Asia dominates currently with 4.4 Billion, Africa with 1.2 billion, Europe with 738 million and North-South America and others by 1.4 Billion.
As per UN, The global population aged 60 years or over with an estimated of 962 million in year 2017, It is more than twice as large as in 1980 when there were 382 million older persons worldwide. The older population of the developing regions is growing much faster than in the developed regions. The number is expected to double again by 2050, and it is projected to reach nearly 2.1 billion old age people. Over the coming decades, the number of older persons is expected to grow fastest in Africa, where the population aged 60 or over is projected to increase Africa has 68.7 millions, 549 Million in Asia, 183 million in Europe, 78 and 76 million in North and Latin America. Japan population is shrinking due to low fertility rates and society and cultural infrastructure, the aging population is rapidly increasing and Tokyo is the most populous city in the world, Taiwan, is another with low birth rates.
Coronavirus disease is an infectious disease caused by SARS-CoV-2, called Covid-19, first identified in Wuhan, a city in China, on December 2019 and has resulted in an ongoing pandemic. As of 13 September 2020, more than 28.9 million cases have been reported across 188 countries and territories, resulting in more than 924,801 deaths.
The chart listed the population milestones from 1804 from the 1 Billion range. The United Nations did predict the world population by the year 2100 after another 80 years will be 10 Billion considering as medium variant, If high variant is considered then the population will raise to 15 Billion and 6.2 Billion for a lower variant which is lower than the population of today.

What was the population in 10,000 BC?
200 years ago there were less than one billion humans living on earth. Today, according to UN calculations there are over 7 billion and projected in 2100 it will be around 11 billion with the growth rate of 2.1. At 1 BC the the population expected to be 188 Million, and at 10000 BC the expected population to be 2.4 million as per Oxford researcher.

African Continent has a population of 1 Billion as estimated on 2017, With the annual rate of 2.7 compared to more developed regions, Eastern europe and central asia(0.9), Arab states or Middle east region has a population of 359 million and growing quickly with annual average rate of 2.1 when compared to Africa, the rate of change is 1.5 times more than the world annual rate of 1.2. Rapid population growth keeps poor countries poor, this may happen to some of the African Nations and Asian countries due to weaker policies, on the other side it may be reverse for Arab States as they may get much richer by having a good annual rate.

The global rankings on women's inclusion, justice, and security offer multiple insights. As per GIWPS 2017-2018 report of 153 countries Average women index of having equality is 0.68 compared to men and top 5 countries on earth are Iceland(1), Norway(2), Switzerland(3), Slovenia(4) and Spain(5) and 5 countries with poor equality status for women are Afghanistan(153), Syria(152), Yemen(151), Pakistan(150) and Central African Republic(149). In terms of mean years of schooling Germany has the average of 14 years, followed by United States and Canada with 13.5 years. Burkina Faso, Mali, Burundi, Ethiopia are the lowest with 1.3 to 2 years. 62 million girls around the world are denied an education, which often dooms them to a life of poverty and dependence(globalcitizen.org).
One way to empower women around the world is to help them gain land rights. According to landesa.org, Only 30% of the world's population own land titles, and women are often the least likely to have land registered. More than 400 million women farm, yet only about 15% of farmland is owned by women. Finland, Denmark and Norway has 100% Financial inclusion(Percentage of women ages 15 and older who report having an individual or joint account) where top 5 countries having the poor standard of financial inclusion are Turkmenistan(1.5%), Yemen(1.6%), Niger(2.5%), Pakistan(3%) and Central African Republic(3.4).

Son bias is preference for boys reflects serious discrimination against girls and women, China(1.16), Azerbaijan and Armenia has high ratio, followed by Vietnam(1.12), India(1.109), Georgia(1.106), Pakistan(1.087) and Maldives(1.10). Son bias is the discrimination against girls and women, In an influential 1990 article, Amartya Sen examined the high ratios of men to women in several countries and estimated that more than 100 million women were “missing” worldwide, these numbers tell us, quietly, a terrible story of inequality and neglect leading to the excess mortality of women. Best score is 1.02, Global average is 1.08 and worst score is 1.16.
Expansion of urban regions was driven in different parts of the world, with growing economic prosperity and infrastructures expanding road, railway and air networks. This makes people of the middle class move towards the urban and suburban towns for the better quality of life. Currently the top 3 populated cities are Tokyo, Delhi, Shanghai. North America is one of the most urbanized regions of the world with most of people living in urban areas like São Paulo and followed by Mexico City is the fifth populous city. Growth was always closely related to economic development, larger cities tend to perform better economic output. In case of the south-east asia monocentric urban agglomeration of Seoul, nearly all urban functions are concentrated in the core city, its the populous city in South Korea with 10 million. The data refers only to the population of municipalities within their city limits, some of the populations of other municipalities considered suburbs of neighbourhood city, and some are unincorporated areas within urban agglomerations are also included. Moscow is located in the far western part and political center of the Russia, city reconstruction plan according to urban needs along major roads was adopted in 1935. Istanbul is the most populous city in Turkey that straddles Europe and Asia across the Bosphorus Strait. Paris is the France capital and one of the oldest city and top tourist destinations in Europe. It is popular for boulevards, plazas, monuments, gardens and beautiful bridges. London is one of the ancient city and most powerful cities of the ancient world. Johannesburg is the largest city of south africa and economic capital of the African continent.
In North America, large urban agglomerations can be seen rising along the east coast where the first colonial settlements. This urbanization trend was started over centuries by road networks and later railway lines and train stations. Due to the population flow to urban towns, The service areas quickly picks up with the population service requirements either it is in municipal,banking or utilities. When considering U.S. municipal, metro and metropolitan area populations, Most populated cities are New York City is the most populous city in the United States and eleventh populous in the world with 8.2 million. Some of the towns evolved as trading centres and mainly harbours as transportation hubs if these are close to coasts. They have been later connected with the hinterland and the west coast through railways, followed by Los Angeles with 3.9 million in the Southern California state, Chicago in the Illinois state and is the third populous, and followed by cities like Houston. In the mid west, these areas are the key drivers near to the Great Lakes and transportation hubs can be identified as an agglomeration covering several cities like Phoenix and Philadelphia. Along the U.S West Coast, the urban statistics turned out in various factors with harbour cities like Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego which are connected with the hinterland. Washington, D.C. is the political and administrative centre with historical and cultural heritage, New York is the commercial, service and banking centre, while Boston can be seen as academic centre.
Religion is often said that its a belief and worship or a cultural system, But its the non-removal dress you wear to your mind without knowledge from your birth. The older religions on earth are As per the pew research center in 2015, Christianity is the largest religion with 31% with 2.3 billion world Christian population, followed by Muslims make the second largest religion with 1.8 billion world Muslim population around 24%, followed by 15% of world hindus population and Buddhists are 7%, remaining 23% belongs to other groups like Jains, Jews and members of other religions represent smaller shares. As per the report European Christians percentage is decreasing rapidly due to lower fertility rate and Muslims are growing faster and will be largest religion by 2060. The fertility rates among religions are Muslims with 2.9, Christians with 2.6, Hindus with 2.3, Buddhists with 1.6 and Folk and all other religions with 1.8 to 2.4. Regarding the youngest median age world population Muslims with 24 years, followed by Hindus with 27 years and world population Christianity with 30 years age.
Today, the fastest population growth is found on the planet from 1900 onwards where poverty is worst. Between 1900 and 2000, as the world's population was exploding, per capita income grew quicker than before 1900, Many of the countries income was rising and for individual nearly fivefold. But it's not clear that population growth is the key problem of many countries where many of the governments are lacking to provide skills and create work. Approximately 5 Billion population are living under low standards of income levels out of which 1 Billion people are living by poor income levels as estimated on 2011, Another 3.9 Billion living under Low income levels.
|Level||as on 2011 by percent||point change, 2001 to 2011||Worldbank Threshold 2019|
|Middle income||13%||5%||$995 - $3,895|
|Upper-middle income||9%||2%||$3,896 - $12,055|
