Founded to Serve
of Mineralogical Societies, Inc.
The world population has now reached 7 billion people. This milestone
inspired us to conduct research to update our statistics, and the
changes over the past 5 years are remarkable. In 2006, only 1 person
out of 100 would have had a college education-- today that number has
jumped to 7 thanks in part to advances in higher education in Asia. The
detailed research and source information can be found here and the
statistics provided by Donella Meadows in 1990 that originally inspired
our project can be viewed here.
