Is Grentity a word, or just another technical term? I can not find a definition anywhere. It comes from the following statistical page, but I don’t see a definition available there:

https://www.worldometers.info/world-population/afghanistan-population/

It is a page from this site: https://www.worldometers.info/world-population/

(Edit due to misspelling.)

A technical term is a word.

But in this case it looks to be a typo or a machine-generated error. It appears as “Yearly Population Grentity_mediumowth Rate (%).” Clearly, what is meant is “Yearly Population Growth Rate.” Somehow the extra characters “entity_medium” were inserted. Since it’s on all the pages on this site, it seems to have been created by a coding error.
