How to measure the world’s most populous country
More than a billion people live in the country, but how does a country like the United States compare?
We spoke to researchers from the University of Southern California and the University in Beijing, China, to figure out how the population is distributed across the globe.
We asked the researchers to measure people’s average age, gender, race, and place of residence, and then we divided the number of residents into two categories: those who live in one of the most populous countries in the world and those who don’t.
The researchers then calculated the number that would be needed to achieve a global population of one billion.
This is the number needed to fill the entire world’s oceans, according to the United Nations.
Here are the countries with the most and least people:Costa Rica, the Philippines, Nicaragua, Chile, Honduras, Costa Rica, Chile.
Wealthy countries such as Singapore, Japan, and France have the highest number of people, and the least.
The US, with a population of around two billion, has the lowest number.
Costa Rican President Ana Escobar said in 2016 that she believed the country had reached the limit of its capacity to sustain a growing population.
In 2020, the country’s population was 741,000, down from 836,000 in 2015.
The country has been hit by a severe drought and floods, and many people are still living in shelters.
The U.S. is the largest country in the Americas, with about 537 million people.
The United States has more than 2,000 cities, more than 400 million people, a million churches, and over 5,000 universities.
The U.K. has around 2,400 cities and more than 200 million people; Mexico has nearly 1,600 cities and over 3 million people each.
