The Miniature Earth

If we could turn the population of the earth into a small community of 100 people, keeping the same proportions we have today, it would be something like this:

61 Asians

12 Europeans

14 Americans (from North and South America)

13 Africans

01 Australian (Oceania)

50 women

50 men

10 homosexuals

33 Christian (Catholics, Protestants and Orthodox)

18 Muslims

16 Hindus

16 non-religious

6 Buddhists

11 practice other religions

41 live without basic sanitation

16 live without an improved water source

6 people own 59% of the entire wealth of the community

13 hungry or malnourished

14 can’t read

7 educated at a secondary level

8 have a computer

4 have an internet connection

Of the village’s total annual expenditures of just over US$ 3,000,000 per


US$ 181,000 is spent on weapons and warfare…

US$ 159,000 is spent on education…

US$ 132,000 is spent on health care.


If you keep your food in a refrigerator
And your clothes in a closet
If you have a roof over your head
And have a bed to sleep in

You are richer than 75% of the entire world population.

If you have a bank account you’re one of the 30 wealthiest people in the world.

25 struggle to live on US$ 1.00 per day or less…

47 struggle to live on US$ 2.00 per day or less.
