In 2007, the global population growth rate was at about 1.19% a year. This rate has been steadily declining from a rate of 2.20% in 1962 and 1963.
The world population growth rate is currently about 1.14% This means at the current rate, the population will double over 61 years. Though population growth is still a problem in many regions, this does represent a decrease from the worldwide population growth high of 2% in the 1960s.
The annual population growth is around 2.1-2.2% per year. The percentage peaked between 1962 and 1967 at 2.2%. In 2007, the growth rate was 1.19% so it’s pretty well maintained. This is largely due to an increase in medical advances and massive increases in agricultural productivity. The largest growth of human population in a year was 1989 when 87.8 million people were born. In countries in Eastern Europe and South Africa, they are actually experiencing a negative population growth.
* The first line should read 1.1-1.2% per year. Sorry about that!
