India has about 16 per cent of the world’s population. Its population is 1,339,866,200 (2018 estimate). The overall population density is about 380 people per sq km (984 per sq mi). Many births and deaths are unregistered, but official data suggest that the birth rate in 2007 was about 23 per 1,000. Life expectancy averaged 69 years. Approximately 71 per cent of India’s population lives in rural areas. Though living conditions in many areas have improved—for example through the provision of clean water—most people are still poor. About one third of the population lives on or below the UN poverty line; less than 3 per cent of Indian households have an income of more than US$2,500 a year.
