Geographic Information Systems Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for cartographers, geographers and GIS professionals. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Does anyone know of an API (preferably free) that can provide real time world statistics such as Crude Birth Rate, Crude Death Rate, world/country population, or emails sent today as on the website http://www.worldometers.info/?

I'm looking to connect the data to an iPhone app, and I can work with any sort of return type.

It's not likely to be 'real-time' (data/censuses takes time to compile from all the countries around the world).

http://databank.worldbank.org/data/Databases.aspx

and the databank API

http://data.worldbank.org/developers

would be good starting points.
