IELTS TASK 1: World Population by Region, 1900 and 2000
A breakdown of the proportion of the people living in the world in different regions in 1990 and 2000, a century year period is presented in pie chart. The most significant fact to emerge from the graphs is the number of inhabitants increased rapidly in this period. In any case, Asia had predominant percentage out of the other areas.
In 1900, the largest population was Asia, representing three-fifths of all citizens. Although it was still a majority proportion, by 2000 it had fallen to just over a half of the total which comprised Soviet Asia, well known as Asia Pacific. The number of residents in Europe was a half of Asia in 1900, at 25%. It was the second biggest demography, whilst 2000 witnessed a gradual drop at 14%.
In contrast, less population was seen in the remaining region. There were very small proportions in North America, Africa, Latin America, and others countries, at less than one in twenty. However, there was a slight rise in both Africa and Latin America between 1900 and 2000, by virtually 5%. In the same period, demography in North America and others regions remained nearly stable, at 3% and 5% respectively. There was a new area in 2000, Middle East and North Africa which had twice as more inhabitants as North America.
