Population Multiplier
From Traveller Wiki  ScienceFiction Adventure in the Far future
The first digit of the "PBG" element of a UWP is the population multiplier. The number is used with the Population code in the UWP to determine the mainworld's overall population.
Description (Specifications)[edit]
Example: Take the following (fictitious) UWP:
Nerdle 0101 A867978E N Hi 811 So G2 V
The population code in Nerdle's UWP is 9. This indicates that the population is in the billions (9 zeros). The number 8 (at the beginning of the PBG) is then added to the population code, giving a population of 8,000,000,000, i.e. 8 multiplied by 10 to the power of 9 (8 * 10^9 = 8,000,000,000).
