Overpopulation is an indubitable controversial topic of the present and future. Overpopulation is the unbalanced ratio of humans to resources. Statistical information shows that every day over 345,600 babies are born in the world, but every day 153,000 people die. Since more people enter the world than leave it, the population is overflowing. The more babies born start a lingering domino effect. More resources are being used and the world may be forced to take drastic measures.

According to this graph, there will be many increases and decreases of the population throughout the year. In this graph, the country of Niger is the least populated compared to other countries with a population of over 200 million. And the most populated country is China currently, but slowly India will trump the population of China.
