In Malawi, for example, the TFR has been dropping for the past 10 years. World population is estimated to reach 7.58 billion this month as World Population Day is celebrated on 11 July, but the US Census Bureau is projecting another milestone: Annual population growth will slip under 1.0% in 2020-2021 for the first time since 1950. The United Nations declared 11 July as World Population Day in 1989, two years after world population crossed the 5 billion mark.
