Interesting Population Statistics

I thought this was interesting, estimated statistics for 2011.

360,000 births per day 151,600 people die each day
15,000 births each hour 6,316 people die each hour
World Population Estimate 6,948,542,820 (Nearly 7 Billion)

That means the planet is growing at about 2.4% every year, based on my calculations.

1.8 billion People under age 15 years (26%)
4.4 billion People age 15-64 years (66%)
516 million people are 65 years and over (8%) (Half a Billion)

Australia’s estimated population as at December 2010 is 22,557,266. That is approximately 0.32% of the world. We are a small number of people compared to the rest of the world.
