Where do you fit in the world?

As we all know, this week the world reached a population of 7 billion people, re-igniting all the usual debates about growth, economy and sustainability.

As part of their reporting on this momentous or terrifying occasion, depending on your view point, BBC News have published a sort of calculator on their website, whereby you can enter your date of birth and find out just what number you are in the world’s population. I’m in the 4.7 billionth area. The number is too long for me to remember.

It does a few other nifty tricks too so have a look.
