BBC has a handy tool put together to help you discover your “population number.” Population number is where you rank (in terms of number) in the midst of the number of people in the world.
As the world’s population recently crossed seven billion, and the seven billionth born being an Indian, this tool uses your date of birth to find out where you fit in. It will evaluate the given information and pull data from UN Population Division to determine your number in the world population.
For instance, I’m the 5,282,534,431st person born in this world.
Number of People in India
According to BBC, the recent population in India for the year 2011, November 7th, is 1,230,830,218.
India’s population in 2010 was 1,170,938,000. This population number has been scoured from Google, which uses third-party sources like World Bank to obtain population data. So, if you want to find out the number of people living in India, this query reveals the most accurate information.
