Real-time World Statistics

In 2009, we highlighted a website that we thought was worth sharing, Worldometers.info.  In case you didn’t catch it the first time, we thought we’d share it again. 

Statistics are a powerful tool you can use to enhance any kind of argument or to simply demonstrate that the planet is in peril! Worldometers.info can provide you with just that!

Through this real-time illustration of data such as world population growth, health-care expenditure, cars produced, new books published, forest loss, C02 emissions and water and food consumed you can draft up an interesting picture of the world today (or the world this very moment, as things change almost every second and are updated real time)!

The categories of data represented through Worldometers include: 

    • World population
    • Government and Economics
    • Society and Media
    • Environment
    • Food
    • Water
    • Energy
    • Health

    This summer, we're sharing the best articles from the SSC website, going back eight years. The article above was originally posted on September 1, 2009. We'll be back in September with all new content. In the meantime, if you're interested in learning more about SSC, or working with an SSC consultant, please contact us!
