Based on a global average of four persons per family and a demographic growth factor of 7% applied to the world’s total population throughout time, there are approximately 2.2 billion residences in the world as of the year 2021.
It depends on the number of people living there and how big their homes are. In areas where families tend to be smaller, more houses are constructed to accommodate everyone.
Estimated Number of Homeless:
There are still people without homes who are hoping to find shelter someplace in the world, despite the fact that there are many homes available.
According to a 2005 report by the United Nations, there were almost 100 million homeless people in the world.
About 78 million lived in India alone. The sheer number of dwellings in the planet is laid bare by these statistics.

Can you define “housing” for me?
Defining our terms is necessary before attempting to calculate the total number of homes in the world.
For the purposes of this article, we expand the concept of a house beyond the Macquarie Dictionary’s definition of “a building for people to live in, usually one which is self-contained and designed for a single family” to include all types of buildings (including apartment blocks) in which people live, with the exception of hotels, rooming houses and other lodging houses, institutions, and camps.
This definition is consistent with that employed by the United Nations Statistics Division, Department of Economic and Social Affairs.

To put it another way: how many structures do we have in the world today?
Twenty million structures are possible (1 + 4 + 15). One source claims we have more than 5 million offices alone, so that number may be low.
The United States has at least 40 times as many people as New York City does, therefore we would need 34 million buildings to house everyone here. New York City has roughly 860,000 buildings for 8 million people.
How many structures are there in the world? It was a fantastic question posed by our good friend Alan D-S. Indeed, he has in mind structures as diverse as teepees and as towering as skyscrapers. Well, nobody has compiled a comprehensive catalogue of the world’s structures.
Not all nations keep tally, and even in those that do, it is typically just localities within those nations that do so. In any case, we can utilise mathematics to produce a rather accurate prediction.
More buildings are required for a larger population in a town, unless the population density is high enough that many people can dwell in a single tall building.
In rural areas, there may be only one structure for every square mile, yet in New York City, a street block that is only a twentieth of a mile broad may have twenty structures.
At the very least for the United States, we can make an educated judgement if we run the figures. Keep in mind it may not be applicable everywhere; there are probably more penguins than structures in Antarctica.
