The world

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 this:

52 Female
48 Male

89 Heterosexual
11 Homosexual

70 Non-white
30 White

70 Non-Christian
30 Christian

70 Would be unable to read

There would be:
57 Asians
21 Europeans
14 From the western hemisphere
8 Africans

50 would suffer malnutrition

30 would live in sub-standard housing

1 would be near birth
1 would be near death
And 1 (yes only 1) would own a computer.

Hi,

interesting exercise and a useful reminder to freshman college students ... always an eye-opener to those in the US.

I was wondering about the number for homosexuals. I would have said
8 rather than 11. Based in part upon this anaylsis ...

A. F. F. ... Frequency of Homosexuality Across the Globe

cheers

But....who would be in charge? And there is no way the village could work. I am afraid Utopia is a fantasy

Al- Can only be the one with the computer, but who is she/he chatting to?

Erik, It should be a heterosexual,non-white female who is asian,non-christian and unable to read and may well be thin....Majority rule. However It is probably the biggest bloke!!
