CISSP #'s

I've looked and found different numbers but does anyone have a general idea of how many CISSP there are in the world? I'm just curious.

Thanks in advance.

    Not sure if there's a flat out # listed, but here's the regions.

    Got bored and ran through one time with the calculator. 86,243.... maybe. Could've easily fat fingered it.

    Has the number of SSCP's hit 1000 yet? I haven't check in quite a while. ;)

    The mid 80's is what I was seeing also, but I figured I must be missing data somewehre. I thought there were a lot more. Thanks for everyone's input.

    That is significantly lower than I thought...

    Do you guys know how to look up someone to verify the CISSP status?

    I would say that we are a VERY unique bunch. 7,000,000,000 in the world and 86,000 CISSP's means that there is an average of one CISSP for every 83,000 people in this world. Show me a mathematician who wouldn't consider that a unique number and I will eat my hat.
