Human population continues to grow in most parts of the world, and the table below should help to illustrate how the population is divided amongst the various countries. It is interesting to note that the two most populous countries (China and India) are home to about one third of the world's total population. Here are the 25 most populous countries.
Bhutan- I'll take that question. Shanghai is the largest City in China. It has a population of 17,780,000.
Beijing, the second largest city in China, has a population of 15,038,000. Both China and India are among the top ten countries with the highest population in the world.
Sunny27- What about China? Doesn’t China have any of the top 10 cities in the world with respect to population?
SurfNturf- I can answer that for you. The city with the highest density population in the world is Mexico City.
Mexico City has a current population of 18,204,900. Karachi, Pakistan has the second highest population in the world. Its current population is 18 million.
The highest population density in India is in Mumbai, which has a population of 13,072,000. It is the largest city in India and among the top 10 cities with the largest population in the world.
Latte31- I agree with you. Our presence in Iraqi is to help stabilize the region. Remember our country took over two hundred years to get to where we are now; this new found form of government will take a lot of time to fully integrate.
What I want to know is what city has the highest population in the world?
Dandydigger- I understand your point of view and I am sure many agree with you. You may not agree with the war in Iraq, but the United States has made many positive changes in the country. There are now free elections in which the Iraqis get to vote for their leader.
Saddam Hussein was a ruthless dictator that Iraqi’s feared. He gassed his own people and there were numerous accounts of women being raped by his son’s.
The United States went into Iraq because it received intelligence, as the rest of the world did too, that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.
The demographics of Iraq include 3% of the population age is 65 or older. This is due to the fact that the average life expectancy is only 59.
While this is improving, raising the standard of living for Iraqi's is an important goal because 42% of the population is 15 or younger.
Strange as it may seem, the latest loss of life in the college mass killings is eerily the same that happens daily in Iraq and we think nothing about it. Do we think of the grief, anger and sadness that thousands of Iraqi families face daily? Yet we are not willing to do anything about it except to "stay the course!" What is the course and why must we stay it?
Do we not have access to energy other than that belonging to another nation and its people? Think about what price we are forcing others to pay for our greed and selfishness. I am ashamed to be an unwilling part of such a charades.
