Not to split hairs, but I just like statistics:People's Republic of China
: 1,322,490,000 or 19.82% of the worldJapan:
127,790,000 or 1.92% of the worldUnited Kingdom:
60,587,300 or 0.91% of the world
Total for the three= 22.65% of the world
- or NEARLY a quarter, as I originally stated.
It's amazing that the amount of research I just did took me about 30 seconds. When I was in college, that would have taken a week in thel ibrary.
...and I counted the whole United Kingdom. If I had just counted Great britain, the number would have been lower: 58,845,700 or .88%This is based on a world population of 6,671,226,000 as estimated in July 2007. Figures are based on the most recent estimate or projection by the national census authority where available and generally rounded off. Other figures are based on the 2007 mid-year estimate by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs – Population Division.
