Graph of the Day: UN Population Projections for Africa and China

I was using the data above for a piece I'm working on and thought I'd post it up for future reference. The graph shows UN population projections (medium fertility scenario) for China and the continent of Africa.

Africa is projected to surpass China's population in about 10 years, reach double China's population soon after mid-century and end the century with 4 times China's population.
