|It's getting crowded here.
A hundred years ago, in the beginning of the 20th century the entire world population was less than 2 billion people.
Today, in 2017, the current world population has exceeded 7 billions (7,299,000,000).
The world’s population is growing by 200,000 people a day!, but death and birth rates have declined over the past several decades. (World Bank)

Population Density - Most Densely Populated Nations
The population density is calculated from the country's population and the land surface area of the country (population by square kilometer (km²)). Not recognized in this list are countries with a high population density even though the country has a great surface area, but big parts of the land are unhabitable due to deserts, mountain ranges, jungle and swamplands or land that is permanently covered in snow or ice.
