With an estimated population of 88.7 million, the Philippines is now the 12th most populous nation in the world, a report by the United Nations Population Fund (UNDP) said yesterday.

China, comprising 20 percent of the estimated 6.6 billion world population (as of July, 2007), topped the list with an estimated population of 1.319 billion, followed by India with about 1.122 billion people or 16 percent of the world population.

The UN agency said Asia accounts for more than 60 percent of the world’s population with almost 3.8 billion people, while Africa accounts for 12 percent with 840 million people.

Europe comprises 11 percent with 710 million people, North America, 8 percent with 514 million people, and South America, 5.3 percent, with a population of 371 million.

The 15 most populous nations in the world are: 1. China, 2. India, 3. United States (300 million), 4. Indonesia (225 million), 5. Brazil (186 million), 6. Pakistan (165 million), 7.
