I'm currently writing a book and I've run into a little issue early on.

I need statistics (estimates would do [obviously]) about how many people have been born (on the entire planet) since a certain date in time. Is there some website out there that will allow me to plug in, say, the year 1700 and see that?

If not, how would you advise I go about calculating this?

I hate you and you hate me.

The UN probably is the next best place to check. I don't think it would hurt to send emails to other statistics groups, World Bank etc.

Just Google. I did and it seems to be rather effective.

notwhat I was looking for.I didn't say I needed what the population was at a specific date. I said I wanted the number of people born since that date to present.

They are very different things.

billwillonFind CBR, find total midyear population, then use a calculator to find number of live births in a year = (CBR*p)/1000

Then add all the live births of all the years you want to get the total number of people born since a certain date to another certain date.

EDIT: Or I guess you can find the population growth per year and add the number of deaths in that year to find number of births in that year.
