The graph below shows population figures for India and China since the year 2000 and predicted population growth up until 2050.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
The graph shows how the populations of India and China have changed since 2000 and how they will change in the future.
China’s population starting from year 2000 is about 1.2 billion which is 0.2 billion higher than India’s population. Between 2000 and the present, the populations of both India and China tend to rise. In 2030, India and China are expected to have the same population density which is approximately more than 1.4 billion, where these two lines intersect each other. According to the graph, the population of India will increase more quickly than China. After 2030, China’s population is likely to fall slightly to 1.4 billion in 2050, while India’s population will probably go on increasing and reach 1.6 billion.
Thus, over the 50-year period, India is going to experience steady growth in its population and it will overtake China after 2030. On the other hand, China will peak in 2030 and then begin to fall.
