Mexico’s population tops 112 million, ranking 11th in the world

December 2nd, 2010 |

Mexico recently announced its census results, reflecting a population of more than 112 million people – ranked 11th most populous country in the world – and highlighting concerns on global overpopulation.
The most recent census demonstrates significant population growth in Mexico – climbing from 97.4 million people in 2000 to 112.3 million people in June, 2010. While Mexico’s population growth is partially explained by a reluctance on the part of migrant workers to leave the country in search of work, the latest figures represent an increase that is 3.6 million greater than the numbers projected by experts.

    Fairly predictable for a Catholic country. I was however, a little puzzled by the statement “While Mexico’s population growth is partially explained by a reluctance on the part of migrant workers to leave the country in search of work, the latest figures represent an increase that is 3.6 million greater than the numbers projected by experts.” that suggests that migration is mandatory in terms of managing populations. Perhaps I have the whole thing skewed but I always assumed that overpopulation was due to too many men and women engaging in copulation without the use of contraception.
