The 100 Human World

The Upvoters that cared:
    15 overweight. 7 obese. 14 starving.

    If you were to summarise the world into 100 people, how would the population turn out?

    20 of the 100 in the world would be illiterate and an astonishing 14 of these would be women, the same number as the total people starving. 16 people would be living in poverty, only one more than the amount of overweight people. The infographic below even makes the urban-rural tipping point seem all the more real with 47 living urban and 53 occupying the countryside.

    Which of the figures below surprise you the most?
