World population refers to the total number of humans living in the world. The world population has been on a constant rise since the Great Famine and Black Death ended in 1350. With more humans born every year than dead, the earth is under increasing pressure to provide for their sustenance. Census is the exercise of counting the number of individuals living in a country. It is held by every country separately at regular intervals. The census come out with interesting facts and figures and some of them are listed below:

1. The world population is estimated to be more than 7.08 billion according the report of USCB (United States Census Bureau).

2. The highest growth rate of world population, ever recorded, was 2.2% back in 1963.

3. The rate of growth of world population reached its lowest level in recorded history during 2011 when it was just 1.1%.

4. The continent with highest population is Asia that accounts for 60% of world’s population. It has 4.2 billion inhabitants.

5. Antarctica is the only continent that does not have permanent inhabitants. Its population varies depending on the number of polar stations established there.

6. China is the most populous country of the world closely followed by India. China has a population of 1.35 billion whereas India closely follows it with a population of 1.21 billion. They, together, are home to 37% of world’s population.

9. The global sex ratio is 1010 males per 1000 females. This gender imbalance has been because of the severe imbalances present in Indian and Chinese populations.
