July 11 is the day designated as World Population Day. There are 7.3 billion of us. That descriptive statistic offers much to consider. It is a very large number.

Annenberg Learner has some charts and graphs showing how world population has grown by the billion here.

National Public Radio posted some photographs of how we live. The photographs are from the 2016 National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest. In her NPR piece, Krisin Adair provides a link to more photographs from that contest.
