Top 100 Most Populous Countries In the World

Top 100 most populous countries

How many people are in the world and where do they live? The total number of humans as of July 2018 is 7,524,090,000. And most of them live in Asia with the most populous independent state being China. The rapid growth of population in this region began from the 1950s. As a result, now 5 places in the top 10 are occupied by Asian countries. All other continents are represented only by one or two countries: the USA and Mexico (North America), Brazil (South America), Russia is from Europe (since most of the populace lives in the European part), and Nigeria (Africa).

However, this situation could change drastically by 2050. According to estimates published by the UN, the main driver of future growth will be Africa (plus 39%). The number of Europeans will decline approximately by 7%.
