Can anyone check my graph essay?

The pie charts compare the change of global population between 1990 and 2000.

It is clear that there was a significant rise in the total number of world population, from 1.6 billion to 6 billion over a century.

In 1990, Asia accounted for 60% of the world population. Although this number dropped by 6% in 2000, Asia still represented the largest population of the world. European also experienced a fall in its population, from 25% in 1900 to only 14% in 2000; by contrast, the population in both Africa and Latin America increased more than twofold over the 10 decades, with the numbers climbing to 10% and 8% respectively in 2000.

However, in 2000, a new group named Middle East and North Africa was shown up, representing 6% of the global population. Interestingly, the figures for North America and others remained unchanged over the 100-year period, totaling less than 10% in 2000.

Give are two graphs concerning the change in the number of people who lived in the earth and their distribution over the world in 1900 and 2000.
Overall, what stands out from the graphs is that the number of people all in the world soar from 1.6 billion in 1900 to 6 billion in 2000. Another interesting point is that some regions’ population increased enough in 2000 to be mentioned because they did not have any places in the graph of the year 1900.

Looking at details, of these regions, Asia was the most crowded area in the world in both years, at 60% in 1900, declined to 54% in 2000. Similarly, another considerable change to take place during this period was a decline in the proportion of people who lived in Europe (including Russia) by 11%.

In stark contrast, however, the share of other regions increased. Africa witnessed an exponential growth by 6% in its population. Regions like Middle East and North Africa which hadn’t had a high proportion in 1900, rocketed to host 6% percent of people. Latin America’s which contained only 3% of all, joined with Caribbean to include 8%. However there was not any changes in the percentage of North America and others (excluding those regions which are mentioned in the graphs).
