World Population
 

The world population is the totality of all living humans on the planet Earth. As of today, it is estimated to number 6.992 billion by the United states central Bureau . According to a separate estimate by the United Nations , it has already exceeded 7 billion.

The world population has experienced continuous growth since the end of the Great Famine and Black Death in 1350, when it stood at around 370 million. [ The highest rates of growth global increases above 1.8% per year were seen briefly during the 1950s, and for a longer period during the 1960s and 1970s. Current projections show a continued increase in population (but a steady decline in the population growth rate), with the global population expected to reach between 7.5 and 10.5 billion by 2050.

Human population control is the practice of artificially altering the rate of growth of a human population. Historically, human population control has

been implemented by limiting the population's birth rate, usually by

government mandate, and has been undertaken as a response to factors including high or increasing levels of poverty, environmental concerns, religious reasons, and overpopulation. While population control can involve measures that improve people's lives by giving them greater control of

their reproduction, some programs have exposed them to exploitation.

Worldwide, the population control movement was active throughout the 1960s and 1970s, driving many reproductive health and family planning programs. In the 1980s, tension grew between population control advocates and women's health activists who advanced women'sreproductive rights as part of a human rights -based approach. Growing opposition to the narrow population control focus led to a significant change in population control policies in the early

1990s.
