    ___ Current World Population

    How many people are there in the World?


    It's getting crowded here.

    A hundred years ago, in the beginning of the 20th century the entire world population was less than 2 billion people.

    Today, in 2017, the current world population has exceeded 7 billions (7,299,000,000).

    The world’s population is growing by 200,000 people a day!, but death and birth rates have declined over the past several decades. (World Bank)

    Countries by Population Density - Most Densely Populated Nations

    The population density is calculated from the country's population and the land surface area of the country (population by square kilometer (km2)). Not recognized in this list are countries with a high population density even though the country has a great surface area, but big parts of the land are unhabitable due to deserts, mountain ranges, jungle and swamplands or land that is permanently covered in snow or ice.
