The World as 100 People / Infographic

The World as 100 People / Infographic | visual data | Scoop.it

A demographic portrait of humanity if the world were 100 people.


From data source, 100people.org:

  • The world population has now reached 7 billion people. This milestone inspired us to conduct research to update our statistics, and the changes over the past 5 years are remarkable. In 2006, only 1 person out of 100 would have had a college education-- today that number has jumped to 7 thanks in part to advances in higher education in Asia. The detailed research and source information can be found here and the statistics provided by Donella Meadows in 1990 that originally inspired our project can be viewed here.
