In 2023, India's population will be greater than China's—but most of India's future population growth will be within its much poorer northern states, whereas in its wealthier southern states, its population will be getting older.


Hannah Ellis-Petersen writing in the Guardian, makes the following points:
  • The median Indian age is twenty-nine.
  • The majority of India's population is unskilled.
  • Youth unemployment is running at 23%.
  • India currently has 1.39 Bn people, to China's 1.4 Bn.
