Description :
The oldest human populations were of very small numbers because of little food at their disposal. Up to the relatively recent time, all technological progress led to a bigger amount of food and consequently to the population growth. However, the absolute world population growth is still around 90 millions, the highest growth was achieved in the 1960's. Relative yearly rate increase was more than 2,1%. It decreased to 1,6% during the last twenty years. The size of world population will probably stabilize around 11-12 billions at the end of next century. - (MS)
