The world population on the 20th anniversary of Five Billion Day, July 11, 2007, was estimated to have been 6,727,551,263.

What percentage of the world population dies each day?
WORLD DEATH RATE:
Statisticians have calculated the "mortality rate" for the world to be roughly .883 percent. This means that 1 out of every 113 people in the world died last year.
Based on this rate, here is an estimate of the incidence of death among people now living in the world:
* 1.78 deaths per second
* 107 deaths per minute
* 6,390 deaths per hour
* 153,000 deaths per day
* 56.0 million deaths per year
According to estimates published by the United States Census Bureau, the world population hit 6.5 billion (6,500,000,000) on February 25, 2006, at 7:16 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. On October 18, 2012 at 4:36 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, the Earth will be home to 7 billion. The United Nations Population Fund designated October 12, 1999 as the approximate day on which world population reached six billion. This was about 12 years after world population reached five billion, in 1987. However, given that the population of some countries, such as Nigeria, is not even known to the nearest million, such precise timings are essentially meaningless.
In 2007 the United Nations Population Division projected that the world's population will likely surpass 9 billion in 2050.
About 4 billion of the world's 6.5 billion people live in Asia. Six of the world's ten largest countries by population are in Asia........
