Will the global population surpass 10 billion by the end of the century?

 All predictions have pointed to yes - until presently. Regularly growing estimations from the UN have commonly been the status quo.

A recent analysis from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation implies that the world population may begin shrinking well before 2100.

The World Population in 2100, by Country

In 2015, the United Nations prognosticated that the world population is firmly growing over the years:
2030: 8.5 billion
2050: 9.7 billion
2100: 10.9 billion

In contradiction, the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation draws a contrasting panorama. It predicts the world population to peak at 9.7 billion in 2064. Following this path, there could be 8.8 billion people in 2100.

The main arguments behind this analysis: higher life expectancies, higher educational attainment, contraceptive availability, and lower fertility rates.

The top 10 countries today (2017)
1. China - 1.4B
2. India - 1.38B
3. The United States - 325M
4. Indonesia - 258M
5. Pakistan - 214M
6. Brazil - 212M
7. Nigeria - 206M
8. Bangladesh - 157M
9. Russia - 146M
10. Japan - 128M

By 2100, India had become the most populous country in the world (1.09B). Nigeria leads Sub-Saharan Africa as the only region that will continue to see population growth in 2100. China's total population will contrast by almost half by 2100.

The top 10 countries by 2100

Find cities with similar climate

This map has been created using The Global environmental stratification. The Global environmental stratification (GEnS), based on statistical clustering of bioclimate data (WorldClim). GEnS, consists of 125 strata, which have been aggregated into 18 global environmental zones (labeled A to R) based on the dendrogram.

Map of Fox Species Distribution

Foxes are small to medium-sized members of the Canidae family, which also includes wolves, dogs, and other related animals. There are about 37 species of foxes distributed around the world, and they inhabit a wide range of environments, from forests and grasslands to deserts and urban areas. Below is the map of fox species distribution  created by Reddit user isaacSW Here are some of the most well-known fox species and their distribution: Red Fox ( Vulpes vulpes ): The red fox is one of the most widely distributed fox species and is found in North America, Europe, Asia, and parts of North Africa. They are adaptable and can live in a variety of habitats, including forests, grasslands, and urban areas. Arctic Fox ( Vulpes lagopus ): The Arctic fox is found in the Arctic regions of North America, Europe, and Asia. They have adaptations that help them survive in cold climates, such as a thick coat that changes color with the seasons. Gray Fox ( Urocyon cinereoargenteus ): The gray fox

Moose population in North America

The moose ( Alces alces ) is the largest member of the deer family, characterized by its massive size, long legs, and distinctive broad, palmate antlers found in males. They have a dark brown or black coat and a humped shoulder. Moose are primarily found in the boreal and mixed deciduous forests of North America, Europe, and Asia. They are solitary animals, often found near bodies of water, and are herbivores that feed on leaves, bark, twigs, and aquatic vegetation. Despite their size, moose are strong swimmers and can run up to 35 miles per hour. The moose population in North America is shrinking swiftly. This decrease has been correlated to the opening of roadways and landscapes into this animal's north range.   In North America, the moose range includes almost all of Canada and Alaska, the northern part of New England and New York, the upper Rocky Mountains, northern Minnesota and Wisconsin, Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and Isle Royale.    In 2014-2015, the North American moo
