Kenya: Demographic Statistics Project Very Frightening Prospects for This Country
The United Nations has just released the World Population Prospects (2015 Revision). This is a respected publication that summarises economic, social and environmental data from member countries of the United Nations.
The 2015 global demographic statistics by the UN are astounding. These figures give a snapshot of where nations, including Kenya, are headed. According to the UN, by 2050, the world population will rise from the current 7.35 billion to 9.72 billion. It will hit a high of 11.23 billion by the year 2100.
Most of this growth will be powered by Africa. Indeed, Nigeria is poised to overtake the US to become the third most populous nation in the world after India and China by the year 2050, with a population of 399 million.
