    --The term world population commonly refers to the total number of living humans on Earth at a given time. As of 2 October 2009, the Earth's population is estimated by the United States Census Bureau to be 6.788 billion. More.....................http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_population ---------- Current World Population http://www.ibiblio.org/lunarbin/worldpop --------------- World population to hit 7 billion by 2011: report ------ Most of this growth will happen in poorer countries in Asia and Africa. Frighteningly enough, the global population just reached 6 billion in 1999. From the report:

    "Even with declining fertility rates in many countries, world population is still growing at a rapid rate,” said Bill Butz, PRB's president. "The increase from 6 billion to 7 billion is likely to take 12 years, as did the increase from 5 billion to 6 billion. Both events are unprecedented in world history."

    The UN has a site: http://esa.un.org/unpp/

    That site is the first External Link on the wikipedia page. Even though you can't always trust wikipedia info, the external links section is usually quite good.
