The World of 100

Jon Gosier —  November 27, 2008

Designer Toby Ng used statistics to re-imagine the world as a village of 100 people and came up with the unique images to visualize each fact. For instance “If the world were a village of 100 people, 76 would have electricity while 24 percent would not.” The result is a series of very clever, interesting graphics.

    Interesting numbers I wonder were they come from? I follow the 80 20 rule exclusively. It normally is great for money and work. But the numbers for freedom slavery are not right and will never be that close to each other. Many middle class and even higher class Americans and Europeans are still in slavery. They are slaves to their jobs, houses, kids, wife and the almighty tax man. But other than that interesting set of numbers.
