In 1800 the world had about one billion people. In 1900 there were still
only about 1.6 billion. On or about October 12, 1999, the world population
reached six billion. It has continued to climb at an annual rate of 1.4
percent, adding 200,000 people each day or the equivalent of the population
of a large city each week. The rate, though beginning to slow, is still

population double in their lifetime, from 2.5 billion to over six billion.
