India to become the world’s most populated country this year


According to data released by the United Nations, India is on the way to become the most populated country in the world. It will overtake the population of China with almost 3 million more people by the middle of 2023.

The demographic data from the United Nations Population Fund’s ”State of World Population Report 2023” estimates the population of India at 1,428.6 million against China’s 1,425.7 million.
The report shows the United States in a distant third position with an estimated population of 340 million.
Population experts have used previous data from the UN to predict that India’s population will overtake China but they did not specify a date when this would actually happen. This is probably because of the uncertainty about the data coming from the two countries. The last census was conducted in India in 2011 and the census due in 2021 has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
