The World as 100 People [New Infographic]

The world has over 7 billion people.

How can we get a sense of what it means … and who we are?

One way is by statistically representing the world population as 100 people.  That way, complex issues become more comprehensible and help us get a clearer look at the big picture.

So, what would the world look like if it were represented by just 100 people?

The infographic below covers a broad range of statistics, including: gender, age, race and religion.
