A recent report by the United Nations (Science 346: 234-237) released new projections for the global population through 2100.

Based on this analysis, “world population can be expected to increase from the current 7.2 billion people to 9.6 billion in 2050 and 10.9 billion in 2100.” Furthermore, there is a “95% probability that world population in 2100 will be between 9.0 and 13.2 billion people.” Read more
