The current population of Earth is around 7.8 Billion (2020).
For most people, it is a large figure, that is all.
However, someone has condensed the 7.8 billion in the world into 100 persons,
then into various percentage statistics;
the resulting analysis is relatively much easier to comprehend.

Out of 100 people:
11 are in Europe
5 are in North America
9 are in South America
15 are in Africa
60 are in Asia

49 live in the countryside
51 live in cities

12 speak Chinese
5 speak Spanish
5 speak English
3 speak Arabic
3 speak Hindi
3 speak Bengali
3 speak Portuguese
2 speak Russian
2 speak Japanese
62 speak their own language.

77 have living accommodations.
23 have no place to live.

21 are over-nourished
63 can eat full meals.
15 are under-nourished
1 ate the last meal, but did not make it to the next meal.

The daily cost of living for 48 is less than US$2.

87 have clean drinking water
13 either lack clean drinking water or have access to a water source that is polluted.

75 have mobile phones
25 do not.

30 have internet access
70 do not have conditions to go online.

7 received university education
93 did not attend college.

83 can read
17 are illiterate.

33 are Christians
22 are Muslims
14 are Hindus
7 are Buddhists
12 are other religions
12 have no religious beliefs.

26 live less than 14 years
66 died between 15 - 64 years of age
8 are over 65 years old.

If you have your own home,
eat full meals & drink clean water,
have a mobile phone,
can surf the internet and have gone to college,
you are in the minuscule privileged lot.
(in the less than 7% category).

Among the 100 persons in the world, only 8 can live or exceed the age of 65.

If you are over 65 years old, be content & grateful; cherish life, grasp the moment.
You did not leave this world before the age of 64 years like the 92 persons
who have gone before you. You are already the blessed amongst mankind.

Cherish every remaining moment and be thankful.
