More Than Half Of The World's Population Lives Inside This Circle.
Take a look at this simple, but eye-opening, take on global population distribution.
There are more Muslims in the circle than outside of it. There are more Hindus in the circle than outside of it. There are more Buddhists in the circle than outside of it.
