Just think, you travel to another part of the world and wake up much sooner or later because of the different time zones. It would be useful on vacation to know when the rising and setting of the day's rays is before our organic watch even starts. Set up a timer for your own individual landmarks or special occasions with the help of the tools provided by our Business Intelligence team.
GMT is used so that you can divide the selected time and date across international borders without having to worry about summer time and time zones. Learn more about lunar calendars, Shakespeare and time and definitions of time.
Global population clock: 7.7 billion inhabitants (2018)
Above graph shows how the world populace has evolved throughout time. Display the fully tabled information. In the early days of farming, around 8000 BC, the world was populated by about 5 million people. Between 8,000 years and 1 A.D. it increased to 200 million (about 300 million or even 600, indicating how inaccurate demographic projections from earlier historic times can be), with a annual increase of less than 0.05%.
An enormous transformation took place with the advent of the dawn of the industrial revolution: while it took mankind until about 1800 to achieve one billion, the second billion was reached in just 130 years (1930), the third billion in 30 years (1960), the fourth billion in 15 years (1974) and the fifth billion in just 13 years (1987).
Only in the twentieth millennium the world populace grew from 1.65 billion to 6 billion. 1970 there were about half as many humans in the world as today. I wonder how many of the world's inhabitants were when you were birth? The world' s current demographic growth (2018) is around 1.09% per year (compared to 1.12% in 2017 and 1.14% in 2016).
Current annual growth in the general public is expected to be 83 million. Estimates are to achieve 1% by 2023, less than 0.5% by 2052 and 0.25% in 2076 (an annual growth of 27 million inhabitants to a population of 10.7 billion). By 2100 it should be only 0.09%, or an increment of only 10 million human beings to a combined resident of 11.2 billion.
The global populace will therefore keep growing in the twenty-first and twenty-first centuries, albeit at a much lower pace than in the recent past. In 40 years, the world populace has increased from 3 billion in 1959 to 6 billion in 1999 (100% growth). Recent world populace forecasts suggest that the world populace will be 10 billion in 2055 and 11 billion in 2088.
9619N.A.N.A. The United Nations estimates the world populace at 10 billion in 2056. According to the United Nations, the world will probably have 8 billion inhabitants in 2023 (2026 according to the U.S. Census Bureau). Global population" means the world' s entire humankind (the sum of the number of currently active people).
the date and time at which 6 billion were arrived is likely to vary as already unreliable estimations are continually up-dated. This is a global chart of the world' s demographic concentration, showing not only individual nations, but also many sub-divisions (regions, states, provinces). The Pew Forum, according to a recent survey (based on the 2010 world total of 6.9 billion) by The Pew Forum, there is:
2,173,180,000 Christians (31% of the world's population), of whom 50% are Catholics, 37% Protestants, 12% Orthodox and 1% others. 1,126,500,000 No religious allegiance (16%): Adherents, philosophers and those who do not belong to a particular religious group. One fifth (20%) of Americans are religionally independent. 405,120,000 Popular religions (6%): Religious beliefs that are strongly associated with a particular group of individuals, ethnic groups or tribes.
Do you know how many humans have ever inhabited our world? In the 1970' it was said that 75% of the humans who were ever conceived were still living at that time, the time when contemporary Homo Sarapiens arrived on our face (and not from 700.000 B.C.). As a result of the fact that all demographic information is a crude estimation, and on the assumption of a steady pace of increase for each cycle into our time, it has been calculated that a combined 106 billion humans have been borne since the beginning of mankind, making the current demographic about 6% of all humans who have ever inhabited our earth.
Still others have put the number of people who have ever been alive at between 45 billion and 125 billion, with most estimations ranging from 90 to 110 billion. Every two years, the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs Department of Populations of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs computes, maintains and releases estimations of the overall populace in its World Population Prospects publication group.
Those demographic estimations and forecasts deliver the uniform and coherent rate of demographic numbers used throughout the United Nations system. Global World Population Outlook: The 2017 Review contains the latest available information (published 21 June 2017). Global and country-specific estimations and forecasts are given from 1950 to 2100 and published every two years.
Last revisions slightly raised short-term rises and adapted some earlier figures. In 2015, the preceding review had already raised the forecasts for the world populace. Demographic estimations are based on information from censuses, as well as information on childbirth, death and migrant populations available from domestic resources, literature and questionnaire surveys.
As part of the preparation of the United Nations formal demographic assessments and forecasts, the demographic unit will analyse and, if necessary, adjust for incomplete demographic information from around the world using existing demographic information. At the International Programs Center at the U.S. Bureau of Population Division, the U.S. Cultural Bureau also provides estimations and forecasts using available statistical analyses (based on nationwide information on censuses, surveys and administrations) of populations, reproductive health, morbidity and migrations for each nation or region of the world.
The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that the world populace on March 12, 2012 was 7 billion people. Adaptation of the information is necessary for most Member States to rectify mistakes, omissions as well as discrepancies in the information. Since the most recent figures for a given individual nation are often at least two years old, the current world populace is necessarily a forecast of past figures predicated on expected future developments.
Once new information becomes available, hypotheses and information are reassessed and past inferences and current numbers can be changed. Information on how these estimations and forecasts are made by the U.S. Census Bureau can be found in the methodology of demographic estimations and forecasts. Above World Population Watch is modeled on the latest United Nations estimate of 21 June 2017 and shows the same number wherever you are in the world and at whatever time you adjust it on your computer.
People around the world who visit a personal computer clock-based meter see different numbers according to where they are, and in the past, other world watches - such as those on a United Nations website and National Geographic - have hit 7 billion when their local computer watches hit 4:21:10 AM on October 31, 2011.
Obviously the UN figures are estimated and cannot be 100% precise, so frankly no one can say for sure when the world populace hit 7 billion (or any other precise number), let alone when. However, once an estimation has been made (based on the best available information and analysis), the world demographic watch should show the same number at any time and anywhere in the world.
