This Is What The World Would Look Like If It Were Composed Of Only 100 People (Photos)

Imagine if the world’s population consisted of 100 people rather than 7 billion. If this was the case, we’d probably learn a whole lot more about ourselves.

It makes sense, as everything would be so much easier to narrow down. In a recent Visual.ly infographic by Jack Hagley, stats about the world today are scaled down to satisfy just 100 people.

If there were 100 people in the world, 50 would be male and 50 would be female. If there were 100 people in the world, 87 would have safe water to drink and 13 would not. Pretty interesting, isn’t it?!
