there is no real way to know, as no one keeps track of such a thing to the last person. however, when estimating with the numbers given by different dive agencys and putting them together you get close to 20 million divers. with a global population of 6.7 billion people on earth. Its about 0.3% of people dive. Now that's not to say that all these people dive actively. Some may have already died, stop diving, only dive once in 5 years, etc. So the the # is most likely less then estimated.
