Summary of the World

If we could shrink the Earth's population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look like this:

There would be 57 Asians, 21 Europeons, 14 from the western hemisphere, including north and south america, and 8 from Africa;

70 would be non-white, while 30 would be white;51 would be female, and 49 would be male;

66 would be non-Christian and 33 Christian;

80 would live in substandard housing and would suffer from malnutrition;

only one would have a college education; half of the entire village's wealth would be in the hands of only six people,

and all six would be citizens of the United States.
