After a population decrease in the 14th century because of the bubonic plague, population growth began to surge around 1800 with the Industrial Revolution. During the 20th and 21st centuries growth has occurred and will continue to occur mainly in developing countries like Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Areas most likely to remain relatively unpopulated are comprised of desert, frozen tundra, swamps, and high rocky mountains.
