The United Nations has this data. By using the online tools you can
extrapolate the numbers you want. It lists past numbers and future

UN Population Division

UN Population Detail

I found these here:

If this is sufficient, let me know and I'll repost in the answer box.

hello thanx for the tip ...however it was not exactly what i was
looking for...I need total world births and deaths on a DAILY
scale...the DAILY count is what I need for any months or years after
2001. I can find all other information except for some reason no daily
breakdowns.I do realize I may have to add more I my end due to the
excessive research involved.thanx

I doubt there are daily numbers. There's no way every nation on earth
is reporting daily births to a central location. It's amazing [to me]
that there are monthly numbers!

I'd divide the monthly numbers by the appropriate number of days for that month.
