If you calculate the world's population natural increase using these figures you'll get the increase of 81 658 826 which differs from the number provided above (earth's external migration is zero). The difference of 289 211 is caused by inaccurate data of migration. Of cause, this statement is correct if we assume the births and deaths statistics as trustworthy. Anyway, the calculation error for the number of humans living on Earth provided by countrymeters as of 1 January 2015 is 0.0040 %.

World population density

The world population density is 53.4 people per square kilometer as of April 2015. This number is calculated using 7 263 339 729 people as the world population and 136 034 505 km2 as Earth's total area. This is the sum of land and water areas within international boundaries and coastlines of all the countries in the world.

Since the Earth's total area is about 510 million square kilometers, the world population density can be calculated in several ways:
