We have completely updated the 2018 Population data for all the countries in our database. Next step is to update the Internet users for each country and region. We have started by updating the table and graph for the Ten Most Populated countries, click here to see them.
For Internet World Stats (IWS) certain dates are very important. The middle of each year, June 30, in particular, is a special date. On this date we try to do a general update to the Internet Big Picture. This small webpage gives you a summary, an x-ray, of the world population by geographic region and an estimate of the number of Internet users in the world. From the stats table, you can visit all our website by using the links. View details.
According to the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Internet users in March 2017 stand at 90,003,101. This figure shows a decrease in Internet users in the country http://www.internetworldstats.com/africa.htm#ng
The main stats table, which we call "the Big Picture", has new stats. Right now, for 2017 world population we have an estimate of 7,519,028,970 persons and for Internet users we have 3,739,698,500 users. These numbers give a global Internet Penetration of 49.7%, this means that aproximately half of the world's population is using the Internet. These numbers are amazing and a very good sign for the future!
We say this because in general terms, communities that use the Internet enjoy a better quality of life. This is happening all over the world, in all regions, according to our research work.
The OECD stats page has been updated and the country GDP per capita data has been added. The purpose here is to initiate a research project regarding the influence of Internet usage on the economic progress of the world countries, and its effect on the gross domestic product. IWS will try to determine the existence of a positive correlation between these two variables.
IWS has started to update the stats tables. The OECD – Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development – has 35 member states and their latest population and Internet Users figures have been updated and can be seen here. (Click on this post's title to activate the link.)
