This is incremental population growth and not growth rate

UN says 9 countries to account for half of world population growth by 2050 - Vanguard News

Republic of India 🇮🇳
Federal Republic of Nigeria 🇳🇬
Democratic Republic of the Congo 🇨🇩
Islamic Republic of Pakistan 🇵🇰
Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia 🇪🇹
United Republic of Tanzania 🇹🇿
United States of America 🇺🇸
Republic of Uganda 🇺🇬
Republic of Indonesia 🇮🇩

Can't believe the U.S. is still no. 7 in population growth

That's assuming current trends continue some of those countries will run out of resources it isn't sustainable. Do you really think the Congo, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Uganda will be able to sustain that growth rate?

I remember in the 1980s driving across the US a few times and thinking how sparsely populated it was - at the time around 250,000,000 - and that it could easily hold 500,000,000.

Now it's around 300,000,000.

Do the math.

A lot of that population growth is immigration of people from poor countries hoping to find a better way of life. A great big chunk of it is undocumented immigration.

Such stellar countries...I am sure they will be looking to dump their population onto other countries.

South America is still gladly underpopulated. The least populated continent after Australia.

I would even go further and say it could easily accommodate a billion. China already has well exceeded that number and have plenty of space. Same goes for Canada and Australia among others.

Uganda is a tiny country yet it is projected to have 100 million+ people, it will become more like Bangladesh. But I think you guys are underestimating these countries even Uganda which is the most extreme in population projections, will still be behind Bangladesh in population density. In fact Congo D.R.C is as big as Western Europe (All countries including U.K/Ireland west of and including Italy Austria and Germany and excluding Nordic Countries)It is absolutely massive and majority of it is uninhabited (it currently has the same population as Germany but nearly 7 times larger) . Africa only looks small on maps.

More and more South Asians (Indians and Pakistanis) will come to Western countries.
Interestingly many of them moved to China already.
