World's population - 100 people

The world's population presently is close to 7 billion. If we could shrink the world's population to just a village of precisely 100 people, with all the existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look something like the following:
There would be:
 57 Asians
 21 Europeans
 14 from the Western Hemisphere, both north and south
 8 Africans

 52 would be female
 48 would be male

 70 would be nonwhite
 30 would be white

 70 would be non-Christian
 30 would be Christian

 89 would be heterosexual
 11 would be homosexual

 6 people would possess 59% of the entire world's wealth and all 6 would be from the United States.

 80 would live in substandard housing

 70 would be unable to read

 50 would suffer from malnutrition

 1 would be near death; 1 would be near birth

 1 (yes, only 1) would have a college education

 1 would own a computer

 When one considers our world from such a compressed perspective, the need for  both acceptance, understanding and education becomes glaringly apparent.
