World population hits 7.7 billion as men still outnumber women in Nigeria

The population of the world hits an estimated 7,713,468,000, the United Nations Population Division said on Monday.

According to the World Population Prospect released by the UN on Monday and analysed by TheCable, the medium-variant projection indicates that the global population could grow to around 8.5 billion in 2030, 9.7 billion in 2050, and 10.9 billion in 2100.

The raw data obtained by TheCable also show that males outnumber females in Nigeria, and the world as a whole, negating the popular belief that women outnumber men in the West African country.

Nigeria is estimated to be at 200,964,000 as of mid-year 2019, with 99,132,000 million females and 101,832,000 males.

Men outnumbered women in the 1991 and 2006 censuses conducted by the Nigerian government.

On the globe, there are an estimated  3,889,035,000 males and 3,824,434,000 females.

Fertility in Nigerian women equal to or greater than four live births per woman, making Nigeria one of the most fertile countries in the world

The population of Africa has risen by over 32 million in the past year, raising the numbers to over 1.308 billion people on the continent.
