The Amazing World of 100

This may be slightly old and some of you may have seen it, if you have, well done! I stumbled across this today and thought it was pretty amazing, so I thought I’d post it for those of you as unaware of it as me. The World of 100 is a series of posters that visually represent various statistics about the world if it were a village of 100 people. Its pretty amazing when you see the statistics represented in such a simple manner.

The World of 100

If the world were a village of 100 people, how would the composition be? This set of 20 posters is built on statistics about the spread of population around the world under various classifications. The numbers are turned into graphics to give another sense a touch – Look, this is the world we are living in.
