SAN FRANCISCO – Google is facing  more government demands to turn over information about its users as more people immerse themselves online.

The mounting pressure on the Internet search leader emerged in a statistical snapshot that Google Inc. released Tuesday. Google provided a country-by-country capsule of its sparring with authorities during the first six months of the year.

In Tuesday’s update, Google included the total of user accounts targeted, instead of just the number of requests made by police, courts and other agencies at all levels of government worldwide.

Google, which has more than 1 billion users, received more than 15,600 requests for user data from January through June, 10 percent more than during the final six months of last year.
