Not surprisingly, the largest countries in the world in terms of population are China and India , with both countries now having populations of well over a billion. The United States comes in third with just under million residents. The BRIC countries Brazil , Russia , India and China , generally regarded as the four major emerging economies expected to dominate in the 21st century, are all in the top ten most populous countries, indicating how important the sheer size of their populations are to their economic expansion. However, a number of countries considered by the International Monetary Fund to be developing countries that is, having not achieved a high degree of industrialization relative to their populations, and where the population typically has a medium to low standard of living also have sizeable populations, including Nigeria over million , Bangladesh almost million and Mexico around million , demonstrating that the issues affecting developing nations span multiple continents.

The Philippines proudly boasts to be the only Christian nation in Asia. More than 86 percent of the population is Roman Catholic, 6 percent belong to various nationalized Christian cults, and another 2 percent belong to well over Protestant denominations. In addition to the Christian majority, there is a vigorous 4 percent Muslim minority, concentrated on the southern islands of Mindanao, Sulu, and Palawan. Scattered in isolated mountainous regions, the remaining 2 percent follow non-Western, indigenous beliefs and practices.
The term total fertility rate describes the total number of children the average woman in a population is likely to have based on her birth rate at any given time—this number is meant to project the number of children a woman will have throughout her lifetime. Total fertility rates tend to differ greatly by country. Developing countries in Africa, for example, usually see a total fertility rate of around six children per woman. Eastern European and highly developed Asian countries, on the other hand, can expect closer to one child per woman. Fertility rates along with replacement rates are an excellent indicator of whether a population will experience growth or decline.
