The bar chart illustrates the proportion of the global population compared with 4 nations: India, China, USA, and Japan in 1950, 2002, and the proposal for 2050.
Overall, it is clearly seen that while the percentage of China, USA, and Japan tend to reduce over 100 years, that of India was an upward trend.
Looking first at China, which occupied the highest amount compared to the other countries, it reached its peak in 1950 at about 23 percent, then went down at 20 percent in 2002 and is predicted at 15 percent in 2050. When it comes to USA and Japan, the proportion began at 7 and 4 percent in 1950 and will hit a low in 2050 at 5 and 1 percent, respectively.
It is interesting to notice that the proportions of the population in India was recorded 15 percent in 1950. After that, the percentage went on increasing and will peak at 18 percent in the year 2050.
