Ten Largest Cities Of The World Witnessing Population Growth Rate In 2016:Whether a city is big or small is determined based on two factors namely the area of the land occupied by the city and the population density of the city. Now, it is not necessary that an area wise big city shall be population wise bigger too and vice versa. Thus, in this editorial we shall rank the top ten cities of the World which have made their way to the top chart as biggest cities of 2016 base on the population density and growth rate.
Population density and growth rate contributes to a city’s ranking in the top 10 largest cities of the World in 2016:
In order to have a clear knowledge about the segregation of cities based on population and eventually, their rankings, two most important factors have to be clearly defined.
• Population Density: Geographically speaking, in case of humans, population density is calculated as the number of people residing on per square kilometer or mile of an area. Population density is ideally calculated as a part of population census of a region, state, country, continent, and the World.
• Population growth: The rate of increase in the population of living species (animals, birds or humans) in a particular area, region, province, state, or continent is termed as population growth rate. Increased growth rate contributes to population density and thereby, contributes to the raking of a city as the largest or biggest one.
As per the population census of 2016 the aforementioned cities of the World hold the top 10 positions as the largest cities among the many others.
