Dear 100 Hour Board,

What's your best estimate of how many people have ever lived on the Earth?

- Ranteumptom

A: Dear Ranteumptom,

In '99, Keyfitz estimated it at around 96,100,000,000. ( Carl Haub came up with 106,456,367,669 in 2002. ( My personal best best estimate is 7,367. That takes care of everyone I've ever met, and then some.
