looks like 1.2% in 2009; dropping slightly annually.
The current global population growth rate is about 1.5%, and was specifically 1.2% in 2009 (1). However, the rate varies regionally, and currently, is highest in Niger, which has a 3.66% growth rate as of the beginning of 2011 (2). Though this may seem high, the global population growth rate boomed at about 2% in the 1960s and 1970s. Check out the graph in the first link to observe the trend in population growth over the past few decades.
I recommend the National Geographic article (linked below) to anyone interested in global population rise. Not only does it discuss the global population trends bu it includes visual maps showing the size of countries relative to their population, but also a separate one for how much energy each one uses. They’re quite different. There is some debate about whether population growth is a significant factor in the concern for the environment. Check it out if you have time!
