1. Trung Quốc Dân số: 1,43 tỷ (18,3% dân số thế giới)

With a population of about 1.43 billion, China is still the most populous country on Earth. China was actually the most populous country on the planet for a while. At the same time, however, China's birth rate and therefore population have been declining over the past few decades, which could mean a fall from the No. 1 spot in the not-too-distant future. However, as of now, 18.3% of all people, that is, 5 to 6 people, live in the People's Republic of China, more than any other country.


 

2. India

Population: 1.35 billion (17.3% of the world's population)

2. Ấn Độ Dân số: 1,35 tỷ (17,3% dân số thế giới)

Currently, India represents the second most populous country on Earth with 1.35 billion people. However, this can change quite quickly. If you compare India's birth rate with that of China, it seems like it's only a matter of time until India will overtake China as the world's No. 1 in terms of population size. 17.3% of all humans currently live in India.

3. Hợp chủng quốc Hoa Kỳ Dân số: 328,2 triệu (4,2% dân số thế giới)

Following the top two countries by quite a distance, is the US. With about 328 million people today, the United States has experienced a massive population boom over the past few decades. While the birth rate is actually decreasing in the United States, immigration plays the biggest role in boosting the population numbers in the United States. About 4.2% of humanity now lives in the United States.


 

4. Indonesia
