This is from CSM March 2006. The first two figures are from 2000 and 2003 so I would disregard those. Of the remaining choices, pick one. If you don't like it, divide it in half. It is still way too many.

Most people are able to deal with the concept of 'estimates', but I fully respect your right to refuse to do so.

when theyre as broad as 7-20 million, it suggest we dont have any real idea. when people make claims that there are more than 20 million, based off potentially inaccurate estimates, i tend not to take it as a credibly sourced fact.
