The given line graph depicts the trajectory of population growth in China and India from 1990 and provides projections for population growth till 2050.
The initial population of India was significantly lower than that of China, but the rate of population growth was similar for both countries. There is no significant change predicted in the population growth for India, but the same for China will drop after 2030.
The population of China was more than 1.1 billion in 1990, whereas that of India was between 0.8 and 0.9 billion. Both countries had a high population growth rate, and there was significant growth in population every decade. Around 2020 the population growth rate of China became slower, whereas that of India did not change noticeably.
The population growth in India will keep increasing beyond 2050 at relatively the same rate. By 2030, China’s population growth rate will drop, and the population will fall slightly below 1.4 billion by 2050.
