Africa, by far the world's poorest region, will record the largest amount of population growth of any world region between now and 2050. Africa's population is expected to more than double, rising from 1.1 billion today to at least 2.4 billion by 2050.
This year’s Data Sheet also has a special focus on wealth and income inequality.
PRB's 2013 World Population Data Sheet provides detailed information on 20 population, health, and environment indicators for more than 200 countries. The Data Sheet, interactive world map, and infographic will be released on Sept. 12, 2013, at 10 a.m. (EDT), at www.prb.org.
