  • A Look at the World as it is Today


If the World Were a Village of 100 People

  • If we could reduce the world’s population of nearly 6.5 billion people to a village of precisely 100 people, with all the existing human ratios of goods, food, water, etc., remaining the same, the world would look something like this...


The village would have:

  • 60 Asians

  • 13 Africans

  • 12 Europeans

  • 9 Latin Americans (Central and South America, Mexico)

  • 5 from USA and Canada

  • 1 from the Oceania (Australia, New Zealand, South Pacific Islands)

  • 27 would be under 15 years of age

  • 7 would be over 64 years old


Homes

  • 65 would live in an adequate home

  • 35 would be living in substandard housing


Literacy

  • 84 would be able to read and write at some level

  • 16 would be unable to read or write at all


Daily Sustenance

  • 67 would have various levels of food supplies deemed adequate

  • 33 would be malnourished


Clean Drinking Water

  • 67 would have access to clean water while

  • 33 would be without access to a safe water supply


Running Water

  • 61 would have running water

  • 39 would lack access to running water


Electricity

  • 24 would not have electricity

  • Of the 76 that do have electricity, most would only be able to use it for light at night


Modern Conveniences

Wealth

  • 5 would control 32% of the entire world’s wealth

  • 33 would be receiving (and struggling to live on) just 3% of the world’s income

  • 53 would live on less than $2.00 a day


Parting Thoughts

  • If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep ... you are more comfortable than 75% of the people in this world.

  • If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace ... you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.

  • If you can read this, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all.
