Nigeria will have more people than the United States by 2050

India's population to hit 1.6 billion

And this, from a new Pew Research Global Attitudes Project report (Read the full report at http://bit.ly/1jOvrc8):

India, it is projected, will secure global demographic primacy by 2050. The population of India is expected to increase by more than 400 million from 2010 to 2050, to 1.6 billion. Meanwhile, the population of China may increase by only 25 million, remaining at about 1.4 billion. The U.S. is projected to add 89 million residents by 2050. However, the U.S. is likely to be displaced by Nigeria as the third most populous country. In 2050, India alone may be home to nearly as many people as China and the U.S. combined.
