Global population increases by 2.5 people per second•Per minute: 150 people•Per day: 216.000 people•Per Year: 78 million peopleAccording to global statistics, the world population on earth increases by 2.5 people every second. This increase appears to be extraordinary.It implies per minute: 150 people. However, this number is both commonly misunderstood and misinterpreted in articles and discussions as it does not imply 2.5 new born people in every second. Rather, 4.3 people are born on average in every second while 1.8 die in the same time. In a whole, this implies an increase in the global population of 2.5 people per second (4.3 born people minus 1.8 dead people equals 2.5). Extrapolated, these numbers imply a number of 137 million people who are born in every year on a global level whilst 58 million people die in the same period of time.
