There are now 8 billion people on the planet, although demographers admit that it is impossible to count people correctly and that their statistics may be a year or two behind. The UN expected that the figure would be reached on November 15.

The UN estimates that there are now 8 billion people on the planet; on November 15, the UN forecasted that this milestone will be attained. The "8 Billion Day" is described as "arrived" on the U.N. website.

The UN projection was included in the World Population Prospects 2022, which was issued back in the summer. India will have the world's largest population in 2023, according to the UN. The title is currently China's.

According to UN Secretary General António Guterres, the birth of the world's eight billion people is an opportunity to celebrate human diversity, celebrate our shared humanity, and marvel at medical advancements that have made it possible for people to live longer and decreased child and pregnancy mortality.
