If the World Comprised of 100 people…[Infographic]
Currently the world population is over 7 billion people and is expected to reach to around 10 billion by 2050. Those are real big numbers… but, what if you needed to know the composition and make up of world population on various aspects?
So, lets look at same world of 7 billion people condensed to just 100 people.
The following Infographic is designed by Jack Hagley, a London based graphic designer that wonderfully presents the world if it was made up of 100 people. The Infographic presents composition of the world population based on 9 different aspects, namely – Gender, Age, Religion, Literacy, Information, Nutrition, Water availability, Housing, Language and continents.

I was surprised by couple of points – One is that Bengali population in the world is quite huge. It is equal to Hindi or Arabic speaking people and 4th highest in the world after Chinese, Spanish and English. Another interesting aspect was that 22 percent of the world population has access to computers, that means over 1.5 billion people in the world currently access computers (For me that is quite a big number, was not expecting it)
