Are There More Living Than Dead?

There are 7 billion people on the earth. Have you ever wondered how many people have ever lived and died on the earth before us? Are there more people alive on the earth today than have ever lived on the earth?

So what are the figures? There are currently seven billion people alive today and the Population Reference Bureau estimates that about 107 billion people have ever lived.

This means that we are nowhere near close to having more alive than dead. In fact, there are 15 dead people for every person living. We surpassed seven billion dead way back between 8000BC and AD1.
