TheWorldas100People_519247ce0980d_w1500 Our population recently reached seven billion, which means you are one in seven billion people. That is a lot of people and it’s hard to see the importance of one person with such a large number. What if we changed it to 100 people instead of 7 billion people? How many would have access to safe water? Access to the internet? If there were only 100 people (from Lifehack.Org): 50 are female, 50 are male. 26 of these are children and only 8 people are aged 65 and older. 60 people are Asian, 15 African, 14 people are from the Americas and 11 individuals come from Europe. 5 of us speak English and 5 speak Spanish. Arabic, Hindi, Bengali and Portuguese all have 3 fluent speakers each. 12 speak Chinese, whilst 62 speak other languages. 83 are literate, 77 people have shelter, 87 have access to safe water, 15 are undernourished and 21 are overweight. 33 of us would be Christians, 22 Muslims, 14 Hindus, 7 Buddhists. 12 people would practice other religions and 12 people would not be involved in any religion.
