If we could shrink the earth’s population to a village of
 precisely 100 people, with all the existing human ratios remaining the same,
 it would look something like the following:


There would be:


57 Asians
 21 Europeans
 14 from the Western Hemisphere, both north
 and south
 8 Africans


 52 would be female
 48 would be male


 70 would be non-white
 30 would be white


 70 would be non-Christian
 30 would be Christian


 89 would be heterosexual
 11 would be homosexual


6 people would possess 59% of the
 entire world’s wealth and all 6 would be from the United States.


80 would live in substandard housing


70 would be unable
 to read


50 would suffer from malnutrition


1 would be near death; 1 would be
 near birth


1 (yes, only 1) would have a college


1 would own a computer
