If the World were Represented by 100 people this is What it Would Look Like

 

Earth’s population recently surpassed 7 billion people and that number is still growing. To comprehend the composition of our species 100people.org sought to help people, “better understand the complex issues facing our planet and the resources we share by framing the global population as 100 people”.

Below I have compiled the statistics on 100people.org into 14 image macros that will hopefully help you visualize and understand the Earth and the people who inhabit it.

If you would like to see the sources of the statistics below, click here and scroll to the bottom of the page for the websites used for each statistic.
