    Some reason I believe the world census to be wrong.

    1. Other countries could be lying to make their country seem more powerful, or to make it seem like it's smaller then it actually is to explain it's amount of recorded resources they're buying/selling because their black-market is HUGE. Or maybe bigger again to hide a population decline due to a ruthless dictator.

    2. In Households sadly there is the possibility of someone scamming the system saying they have children to get the taxes, or saying they don't to get a break from their landlord.

    3. We don't know how every country conducts a census. We don't know every countries methods. In the third world they could round a few cities.

    4. Homeless people... well... do we know how to count them? Do other countries?

    5.Changed name? Witness Protection? Do we count them? Probably not but if we do well...

    6. If there is say, an estimate nationally involved in the equation by counting average income to population in the city... well the economy is screwed up so I'd think twice about that.

    7. What's a census' date? Like every ten years? A-lot can happen in ten years... how do we really know the accurate population of the other nine?

    8. Illegal immigrants: There's one Juan Machismo in Mexico,,but he's-never-home, and one Juan Machismo in United States...that counts as two internationally.

    Taxes come from cash changing hands. the more cash there is changing hands, in any way, even with people living in the country spending it on food and hygiene, they are collected. if they send money over the border, it changes into pesos or whatever, and the dollars stay at the border. it is a break even or get richer scenario.
