the bar chart shows the percentage of human population on earth in 4 nations in 1950 and 2002, and the predictions for 2050.

Overall, human population saw a decrease in 3 nations during that period whilst increased only in India. In addition, China are the most populated and Japan are the less populated nation.

Based on the bar charts, China had a largest people with around 23 per cent in 1950 and reduced to 20 per cent at 2002, and also predicted that in 2050 the people in China are 15 per cent. Meanwhile USA had around 7 per cent in 1950 and reduced slightly to 5 per cent at 2002 and 2050 the people are remain the same. Furthermore, Japan was the lowest population with under 5 per cent and reduced slightly in 2002 while estimated for 2050 that people are just around 2 per cent. in contrast, India around 15 per cent in 1950 and increased considarbly over time and predicted to have 19 per cent in 2050.

As can be seen that India are the only one that rose in that period with the differences at the beginning and the last period was about 4 per cent. However, the biggest downfall was come from China that lost more than 5 per cent and it followed by USA (3 per cent) and Japan ( less than 4 per cent) during that period.

alternative answer:

the bar chart illustrates the proportion of the total world population in four countries (India, China, USA, and Japan) in 1950, 2002, and predicted figures for 2050.

Overall, the figures for the proportion of world population decreased for all countries except India. Additionally, India is the only country where the proportion of world population is expected to have increased by 2050

In 1950 and 2002, China made up the greatest proportion of world population, despite a slight decrease in its figure from approximately 23 per cent to 20 per cent. Similarly, the USA and Japan also experienced a decline of around 2 per cent over the same period, with figures at around 5 per cent and 2.5 per cent respectively in 2002. In contrast, the opposite could be seen in India where the figure increased from approximately 15 per cent to 17 per cent in 2002.

In 2050, the figures for China and Japan are predicted to continue to drop to around 15 per cent and 2 per cent respectively, while the figure for the USA is likely to remain unchanged, at 5 per cent. Meanwhile, India’s percentage of world population is projected to continue rising to 19 per cent.
