South Africa's Population Would Be 4.4 Million More If Not for AIDS, Data Show

January 24, 2012

"There would be more than 4.4 million more people in South Africa if it were not for the AIDS pandemic, according to a survey released on Monday" by the South African Institute of Race Relations (SAIRR), SAPA/News 24 reports (1/23). Without AIDS-related deaths, the population would have been 55 million today, instead of 50.6 million, where it currently stands, and "[b]y 2040 the population would have reached 77.5 million -- a whopping 24 million people more than is currently projected," according to the study, GlobalPost notes (Conway-Smith, 1/23). "The survey is based on data sourced from the Actuarial Society of South Africa and the Institute for Futures Research," SAPA/News 24 writes (1/23).
