How about automatically making human population evolution numbers appear in the pages giving historic overviews e.g. when clicking a particular century?[edit]

One of my favorite activities is to make years and century mentions 'clickable", so that when people sea a year, century mentioned, they can click on it and it brings them to a page (semi-)automatically summarizing what other memorable events/people/relevant stuff happened at that time, to help contextualize wikipedia articles to readers which can be very insightful. An interesting parameter to give insight is to remind human population statistics - the size of human population at a specific century, decade, year. Or imagine even making it possible to understand in a specific region to not just have a sense of the world wide human population evolution but the regional context: maybe there was a plague or hunger or era of stability and readers could have a graph indicating not just the human population but the regional population evolution: total number of humans, births, deaths, number of orphans, etc. Is there a way to automatically make population statistics appear in those (semi-)automatically summarizing pages on centuries, decades and years? Must me a rewarding challenge for the programmers? Thy and enjoy your day like I am, --SvenAERTS (talk) 13:42, 8 April 2017 (UTC)
