Not a terribly reliable resource , but a good ball park number -

Quote:
If you were to ask, "How many people die on an average day," you would get a wide variety of answers. Typical answers would range around 300 to 5,000 people. Surprisingly, over 150,000,000 people die every day. On average, 10.8 people die every second.

Whoa Shewolf, if 150 million people died each day, the human species would be extinct in a little over a month. The real number should be closer to 150 thousand people a day.

World population - 6,458,141,043 (Aug. 3, 2005 est.)
Mortality rate - 8.78/1,000
Deaths/day - 155,000

US population - 281,421,906 (2000)
Mortality rate - 8.3/1,000
Deaths/day - 6400

@shewolfnm,
Hi, I'm Dr Ken, nice to meet you..I think you mean to say 150,000,000 per every 3 months. Because if 150,000,000 died per day, and taking into account that there are 6 billion people on the planet and 6 billion is written 6,000,000,000, then the world would have been deceased in 36 days. Avg figures show that the death toll has halved from 20 per thousand in the sixties, to about 10 per 1000 people each year.. that's 1 percent of the world's population per year,which equals roughly 60 million. Now, of course, we cannot rely on WHO figures completely, because of unreported statistics in many countries..
One thing is for sure.. People are dying.. God save us !

@DrKen,
Um not to be argumentative, but your math is contradictory. (actual values are circumspect, but using the numbers you provided, doesn't the math work this way?)

6 billion people population (multiplied by)
1% death rate per year (divided by)
365 days per year = 164 K deaths per day

6,000,000,000 X 1% = 60,000,000 / 365 = 164,383.xx

Extinction would be a concern if there were no births or the birth rate was significantly less than the death rate. We are however a very reproductive species.

21 births per year per 1000 people = 126,000,000 births per year = 345,205.xx births per day*

We are being born at a rate of a little over 2 births to 1 death.

@ltmsurfing,
A bit over 350,000 children are born each day, and about 150,000 people die each day. Do the math. 200,000 net increase per day. 1.4 million per week. 70 million per year. The crisis we face is NOT in the death toll. It`s in the birth poll. A huge imbalance. The intelligent solution would be to decrease the birth rate, and increase the adoption rate. But we aren`t intelligent, so we`ll keep screwing it up.

@ltmsurfing,
lol! not to be argumentative, but YOUR math is incorrect. Use all the big words you want, they don`t phase me. Here`s a simple formula; Using the planet totals from 1750 to present, see if you can epose the exponential growth to the present. And using that see if you can determine the future totals if we continue to expand at that rate DOCTOR

@Individual,
When I ask this question @ answers.com the estimate was 57,000,000/ year. that figure divided by365 equals above 156,000/day. With an estimated 6 Billion on earth today, it would take much longer than a month to extinct the human race. We must remember that a billion in 1000 x 1,000,000. Do the math, it would be a long time to extinct mankind. For extinction to occur, it would take a catastrophy of almost unmeasurable proportions to wipe out a fraction of people on this planet

@kcinbnaiv,
That's pretty much what she (Individual) said five years ago. I think her number was 156,000/day

@DrKen,
Okay, so where can they bury them all? I have never heard or read of any cemetery being enlarged to accommodate all of these never ending burials.
