Worldometers tracks statistics around the world in a wide variety of areas:

  • World Population

  • Food
  • Water

The categories might seem a little dry but there are many items of interest. New book titles, number of cell phones sold, number of cars or bicycles produced today, and how many Google searches and Tweets are a few of the more interesting statistics.

Thanks rhiannon. An interesting (frightening?) statistic is that there are alomost twice as many overweight as undernourished people in the world!

Nice one rhiannon....thanks for sharing !

excellent find, rhiannon - thanks for turning us on to it.

and no, not "dry" at all - in fact their 'about' page ( and their 'sources' page ( are rich with additional information.

thanks again -
