Our Population is Ticking, Ticking, and Ticking Fast

We feel and know that everyday life in the Philippines particularly in our cities is increasingly more dense, with more births.

Think about the population like a clock. It is ticking and ticking fast. The clock says that in 2011, the population was 103,775,002 (July 2011 est. from http://www.indexmundi.com). These year, it is 105,681,347(July 2012 my estimate based on population growth rate, r=1.9%). With each passing day, almost 5466 more births is added to our population.

By my estimation, our population will double to 208 million between 40 to 50 years using my derived formula of t = 70/r, where r is 1.9 (expressed as population growth rate without the percent).
