statistics, The World


Here’s a fascinating (and sometimes quite sobering) website that gives you real-time estimated current numbers – about world population, births & deaths, government, economics, energy, food, media and more – based on statistics and projections from the most reputable official organizations.  It’s amazing to watch the numbers change right before your eyes.

Worldometers’ sources include the United Nations Population Division, World Health Organization (WHO), Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), International Monetary Fund (IMF), and World Bank. Using these, they analyze the available data, perform statistical analysis, and build our algorithm which feeds the real time estimate.
