### worldometer and the Real Time Statistics Project

http://www.worldometers.info/

Worldometers is part of the Real Time Statistics Project, which is run by an international team of developers, researchers, and volunteers with the goal of making world statistics available in a thought-provoking and time relevant format to a wide audience around the world.

Sources
Sources are carefully selected to include only data published by the most reputable organizations and statistical offices in the world.

Algorithm
The counters that display the real-time numbers are based on Worldometers’ algorithm that processes the latest and most accurate statistical data available together with its estimated progression to compute the current millisecond number to be displayed on each counter based on the specific time set on each visitor’s computer clock. Please refer to the frequently asked questions to learn more about the mechanism.
