Earth’s population to peak in 2080: over 10.1 billion, study says

The International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), an Austrian research institute, and the Wittgenstein Center for Demography and Global Human Capital have released new population projections.

According to the forecast, the Earth's population will peak at 10.13 billion in 2080 and decline to 9.88 billion by 2100.

The researchers also said that in the next 30 years, more than 60 percent of the population will have received a high school education.

It is reported that the number of the earth's population is just over 8 billion, and India has already surpassed China to rank first in the world.

The third through tenth places are: the United States, Indonesia, Pakistan, Nigeria, Brazil, Bangladesh, Russia, and so on.

It's worth noting that it's not just the number of humans that's increasing at the moment, but the life expectancy continues to grow as well.

Data show that the average life expectancy of the global population reached 71.71 years in 2022, up 7.72 years from 1990, and is expected to rise to 82.06 years by 2100.
