According to U.N. estimates, the world population will hit 8 billion on November 15.
Worldometer gathers its data from a large number of global databases and forecasting tools.
An algorithm is used to process the data, and the result is a real-time estimate of the world's population.
It is projected that population growth would continue, albeit more slowly, until the 2080s, when it is anticipated to peak at around 10.4 billion people.
According to Bela Hovy of the Population Division of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, "the world population growth rate fell under 1 percent per year for the first time since 1950" in 2020.
The world population is anticipated to reach 9 billion by 2037 based on historical and current trends.
Despite dozens of censuses and demographic indicator surveys, it's difficult to determine how many people are on the globe, let alone how it will change in the future.
