    World - 8.83 deaths/1,000 population (2003 est.)

    6,540,228,952 people currently living in the world.

    So after a little calculation...

    8.83/1000 = 0.00883

    0.00883 x 6,540,228,952 = 57,750,222 per year

    57,750,222/365 = 158,220

    ***158,220 deaths per day.***

    Looks like the estimate that KC found was nearly correct.

    A RATE is a RATE. It doesn't matter if it is stated daily, weekly, or annually. A NUMBER is quite variable. The NUMBER of people who die each day is roughly 1/365 of the NUMBER who die yearly.

    For a better way to think about births and deaths, see my answer to your other question.
