The current population of Earth is around 7.8 Billion.

For most people, it is a large figure, that is all.


However, someone has condensed the 7.8 billion in the world into 100 persons, and then into various percentage statistics.

The resulting analysis is much easier to comprehend.


Out of 100 (you can consider the below as percentage figures)


11 are in Europe

5 are in North America

9 are in South America

15 are in Africa

60 are in Asia


49 live in the countryside

51 live in cities


12 speak Chinese

5 speak Spanish

5 speak English

3 speak Arabic

3 speak Hindi

3 speak Bengali

3 speak Portuguese

2 speak Russian

2 speak Japanese

62 speak their own language.


77 have their own houses

23 have no place to live.


21 are over-nourished

63 can eat full

15 are under-nourished

1 ate the last meal, but did not make it to the next meal.


The daily cost of living for 48 is less than US$2.



87 have clean drinking water

13 either lack clean drinking water or have access to a water source that is polluted.


75 have mobile phones

25 do not.


30 have internet access

70 do not


7 received university education

93 did not attend college.


83 can read

17 are illiterate.


33 are Christians

22 are Muslims

14 are Hindus

7 are Buddhists

12 are other religions

12 have no religious beliefs.


26 live less than 14 years

66 died between 15 - 64 years of age

8 are over 65 years old.


If you have your own home, eat full meals, drink clean water,

have a mobile phone, can surf the internet, and have gone to college, you are in the privileged less than 7% category.


Among 100 people in the world, only 8 can exceed the age of 65.


If you are over 65 years old, be content & grateful. Cherish life, grasp the moment.


You did not leave this world before the age of 64 years like the 92 persons who have gone before you. You are already the blessed amongst mankind.


Take good care of your own health.

Cherish every remaining moment.

Fixed that part. Let's not pretend that success is magical fairy dust that falls on the "privileged." My ancestors and I worked for this.
