India is expected to surpass China to become the world’s most populous nation in 2023, four years ahead of an earlier estimate by the United Nations. China is expected to experience an absolute decline in its population as early as next year, the report said. A Chinese official had earlier this year estimated that the country’s population may peak as early as 2022 as its population of 1.41 billion grew at the slowest pace since the 1950s, according to government data. An earlier report projected India surpassing China by 2027.
