How many people are in the world right now?

Estimated at 6.9 billion souls.

The population of the world can only be an estimate. It changes every day, so the answer will need updating.

On March 16, 2018, a WorldOMeters World Population Clock shows that there are 7.6 billion people living on Earth right now. The U.S. Census Bureau population clock indicates there are 7.46 billion people. They are both estimates.
