 Actually that's about 20% :

76.6 X 1.2 = 91.92

 On second thoughts, it's only seven years, not a decade, since 2006. So maybe this means that the population increased by 25% in the decade leading up to 2006.

That would be 57.45 million plus 19.15 million, to equal 76.6m.

 Correction to earlier correction:

Population in 1996 = 61.28 million

Then 25% increase -

Population in 2006 = 61.28 m  X 1.25 = 76.6 million
