Well, at GMT -3 you can estimate around 230 million people. We have only Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina and Greenland!

GMT +8 includes all of China, the Phillippines, Malaysia and parts of Indonesia so it's the most populous time zone in the world.

Probably the second most populous shall be GMT+1, with most of europe and large parts of Africa in. There shall be probably 800-900 million people living there

What about India (+5.5). Doesn't this country alone have about 1.2 billion? And an own time zone

The least populated ones must be the Pacific ones and GMT -2, where you only have Fernando de Noronha (Brazil) and some other small archipelagoes.

China is just one time zone, and it has more than 1.3 billion inhabitants.

UTC -9:30 contains only the Marquesas Islands. 8,632 inhabitants at the 2007 census. Probably one of the the least populated, if not THE least populated time zone.

Although not exactly official, a few settlements in Australian desert observe UTC+8:45. The population is around 100.

The MOST Populated TIME ZONE In The WORLD!
"The answer is believed to be GMT 8 which includes areas such as Taiwan, China and Malaysia. Almost a quarter of the world's population, close to 1,375 million people live throughout this time zone."

-3:30 GMT also works. (Newfoundland)

It also has a quarterly update if you want!

The current population of this time zone is approximately 480,000. (I've already reduced Labrador's population of 28,000 which sits in GMT -4.)

I think that the Eastern Time Zone of the US and Canada has somewhere near 145-150 million people, being the most populated time zone in both countries. Areas south of us (in the Caribbean and South America) could be added, but don't tend to observe daylight savings time so the number varies by the time of year.

For GMT+12 I would say roughly 6 million, maybe more depending on how many people live on the far far east of russia. It is made up of 4.3 million in New Zealand, with the remainder in Fiji (850,000), Tonga (100,000), Kiribati (100,000), Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky in Russia (200,000) and the Marshall Islands (60,000)

so pretty small!

GMT + 7

145 mil (Java) + 25 mil (Sumatra) + 63 mil (Thailand) + 87 mil (Vietnam) + 20 mil (Lao, Cambodia) + 6 mil (Singapore and Riau Islands) + 2 mil (Western Australia) + 8 mil (5 districts of Siberia) = 356 mil people.
