15 million researchers, medical professionals, librarians and students

That's an amazing number... I am curious about the source of these numbers and how it breaks down (how many researchers, how many medical professionals, etc)?

    Hmmm... digging around some more, I found that there are 6,437,706 researchers (4,187,821 from OECD countries plus additional from non-member countries). Source: http://www.oecd.org/dataoecd/27/52/47406944.pdf

    But if you see the data carefully, there are 4.187.821 Full time equivalent researchers, which is different to count people.
