World Population Growth from 1 to 2022

Hello #datafam! The global population will reach 8 billion this year. I thought this is a nice opportunity to visualize the growth of the world population from the year 1 to 2022.



Just for some context.

- We “only” had a world population of 190 million in the year 1.

- It took 1800 years to reach 1 billion

- It took about 125 years to reach 2 billion

- Just 50 years to reach 4 billion

- And another 50 years to reach 8 billion


Makes you wonder what happened since the 1800s that allowed for such a boom in population. 🤔 What do you think?
