If we could turn the population of the earth into a small community of 100 people , keeping the same proportions we have today it would be something like this...
8 North Americans
5 South Americans and the Caribbean
1 from Oceania
47 live in an urban area
9 are disabled
33 Christians ( Catholic , Protestants , Orthodox , Anglicans , Other Christians )
13 Practice other religions
43 Live without basic sanitation
18 Live without an improved water source
6 own 59% of the entire wealth of the community
13 are hungry or malnourished
14 can't read
7 are educated at a secondary level
12 have a computer
3 have internet connection
1 adult aged 15-49 has HIV/AIDS
The Village spend more than US$ 1.12 trillion on military expenditures and only US$ 100 billion on development aid.
If you keep your food in a refrigerator, your clothes in a closet , if you have a bed to sleep in and a roof over your head you are richer than 75% of the entire world population.
If you have a bank account , you're on of the 30 wealthiest people in the world.
18 people struggle to live on US$ 1.00 per day or less....
53 people struggle to live on US$ 2.00 per day or less.
APPRECIATE WHAT YOU HAVE , AND DO YOUR BEST FOR A BETTER WORLD.

sure highlights many issues we have yet to resolve...
like increasing the ratio of women to men, haha
seriously though, very interesting. I was under the assumption that there were slightly more f to m, but perhaps not significant enough to show up in full percentage points.
"43 Live without basic sanitation" that one really gets to me, such a necessity for life...
thanks for the info TALO
