Definition 1
All the people or inhabitants live in a particular geographical area (a country or region). This concept also can be the total number of cases with a particular characteristic in research.

I came from China, the country currently has the most population in the world. As of November 2019, China’s population stands at 1.435 billion, and its 2020 population is estimated at 1.439 billion. China population is equivalent to 18.47% of the total world population.

Representation: Somehow, we can predict the future according to the population trends, unless there’s going to have many tremendous natural disasters or a World War 3.
