Population Dynamics | Fertility | Mortality | Age Structure 

The World Bank has published the 2017 edition of its dataset: "Population Estimates and Projections." This database presents population and other demographic estimates and projections for the period 1960 to 2050. The data are disaggregated by age-group and gender and cover approximately 200 economies. The data also include information about fertility, mortality, and population by age. 

The world population will increase by approximately 30 percent during the next 35 years, from 7.3 billion to 9.5 billion people, according to the World Bank. African countries will experience the highest rates of growth. The World Bank data indicates, however, that by the middle of the 21st century India will become the most populated country in the world. In contrast, China's total population is expected to contract slightly by 2050 compared to the 2017 total.
