The two pie charts summarise the data on population distribution in the world in 1900 and 2000.
In 1900, the total population was 1.6 billion and 60% of this population lived in Asia.Europe including the Russia was the home for 25% of people in the world.North America ,Latin America and Africa all had a very smaal percentage of people ( 5%, 3% and 4% respectively).Only 3% of people lived in other areas of the world.
The world population increased upto 6 billion by year 2000, and there were striking differences to the worldwide distribution.Although Asia ,having 54% , was still the region with highest percntage of people, it was dropped by 4%.The percentage of people living in Europe ( 14% ) also decreased significantly by 9%. By contrast, the percentages for Africa increased, more than double, from 4% to 10 % and for Latin America this was nearly trippled ( from 3% to 8%).In addition there was a new region, Middle East and North Africa, with 6% of the population. However North America's percentage remained unchange.
Overall, during the period of study, there was a significant increase in the number of people living in the planet.Although Asia and Europe were still the residence for a large proportion of people, the population growth has occured mainly in other regions.
