How big, you may ask? According to projections by the U.S. Census Bureau, the world’s population will be 7,295,889,256 on January 1, 2016, a 1.08 percent increase from New Year’s Day 2015.

Worldwide, the Census Bureau expects 4.3 births and 1.8 deaths every second of January 2016.

The U.S. population is also set to increase on January 1, up 0.77 percent to 322,762,018. In 2016, the U.S. population is expected to increase by one person every 17 seconds, thanks to a combination of births, deaths and net international migration, specifically one birth every eight seconds, one death every 10 seconds and one additional person every 29 seconds due to migration.
