Washington: The world population has passed 8 billion, but the long-term trend of slowing world population growth continues. The US Census Bureau said this on Thursday. The Bureau estimates that the global population crossed this limit on September 26. The US Census Bureau said in a statement that the United Nations had estimated that this number was exceeded 10 months ago and declared November 22, 2022 as ‘Eight Billion Population Day’.
India-Nigeria have not conducted census for a decade
According to the Bureau, this discrepancy may be due to different census methods by countries or due to not counting at all. According to this, many countries lack a system for recording births and deaths. According to the bureau, some of the most populous countries like India and Nigeria have not conducted a census for more than a decade. The rate of world population growth has slowed since doubling between 1960 and 2000.
Reduction in death rate of elderly in countries like Canada
Old age mortality rates are declining in countries such as Canada, while countries such as Nigeria have seen a decline in the under-five mortality rate. The global average age of 32 years is increasing. This is likely to be 39 in 2060.
