Meaningful statistics

If the world's population was reduced to 100 people, there would be: 57 Asians, 21 Europeans, 14 Americans and 8 Africans.

There would be: 52 women, 48 men, 30 caucasians and 70 non-caucasians, 30 Christians and 70 non-Christians, 89 heterosexuals and 11 homosexuals.

80 of the people would live in poverty;
70 would be illiterate;
50 would suffer from hunger or malnutrition
1 would be dying
1 would be being born
1 would own a computer
1 would have a university degree

500 million people suffer from war, prison or torture or are close to death because of starvation.

3 billion people cannot go to their place of worship without fear of being attacked or killed.

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet or change anywhere at home, you are one of the 8 privileged few people in the group of 100.
