With the global population now over 8 billion people, we trace how the population of the world has grown over the decades.

Through this interactive visualisation of country-wise population data, take a look at the 10 most populous countries of the world for every year since 1960.

Watch how the gap between the populations of China 🇨🇳 and India 🇮🇳 keeps reducing - from China being ahead of India by 293 million people in 1975 to just 156 million people in 2005, and then by a mere 19 million in 2021.

India is poised to overtake China soon and become the most populous country in the world.
