This week we are celebrating World Population Day by featuring the PRB 2020 World Population Data Sheet that launched on July 11.

PRB's 2020 World Population Data Sheet

Did you know the world population is projected to increase to 9.9 billion by 2050, an increase of more than 25% from 2020? And in 25 countries, including the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mali, and Niger, the population is expected to at least double by 2050?

Dive into this data and more in the PRB World Population Data Sheet. The Data Sheet provides objective data and analysis on 24 population indicators to help decision makers around the world plan for future disease outbreaks, health care needs, and other developments.

Explore the 2020 World Population Data Sheet and access and export the data from PRB’s International Data Center, where you can interact with visual maps and tables.
