    How does worldometers website calculate the stats?


    Want to know that how does worldometers website calculates the stats? Read this page to get the answers to your query.

    We all at some point may have come across the worldometers website while checking coronavirus statistics. However from the homepage of this website, we could see a number of stats are calculated and the numbers are rolling at a super speed. Some of them are current world population, number of computers and cars manufactured, etc., I wonder how these number are captured by the Website Managers/co-ordinator? Because it is really not possible to have someone and get them counted. Also, how accurate is this data to trust?

It is available in 34 languages. In 2020, the website obtained enormous popularity because of hosting statistics pertaining to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Worldometer collects, validates and aggregate datas from the different sources and even provide COVID 19 live statistics for a wide audience around the world. Such datas are trusted and used by UK Government, Government of Thailand, Government of Vietnam, BBC and many others.
    Before Pandemic, Worldometer was best known for its reliability in terms of figure such as population of the world, number of cars produced in a year and license counters in different countries.
    With the COVID crisis, its popularity has boosted to an astonishing level since it is providing top ranking Google results for the Corona Virus Statistics.
    The figures are continuously fed by the experts engaged in researching and Volunteers having goals to provide the latest statistics in varied cases where the collection of the datas was primary concern.
    The figures relating to COVID 19 cases may be somewhat less such as hospitalisation, deaths of the patients since the datas fed by New York, Texas, Jersey, Washington etc are not the true revealation soft figures.
    Hence both the Worldometers and John Hopkins number may be inflated figures.
