ABSTRACT

On October 31, 2011 the global population was estimated to have reached 7 billion. The demographic changes between developed and less developed regions will be readily felt in the next decade – by 2025 – when the world’s population hits 8 billion. More developed countries are simultaneously facing fertility rates at their lowest levels and aging populations, while less developed countries, in contrast, are and will be experiencing higher birth rates and a significant “youth bulge”. The majority of the next billion will be born in low- and middle-income countries where those with the lowest per capita incomes will be more likely to experience higher fertility rates if current trends continue.
