If The World Was A Village of 100 People . . . . .

How often have we heard of statistics like 20% of the world's population lives below the poverty level or 14% are illiterate? While profound, for most of us, it is hard to visualize how severe the issue really is. To make it simpler to understand, Hong Kong based graphic designer Tobt Ng has created a series of designs dubbed the 'World of 100'.

The set of 20 posters graphically depict all these confusing statistics using the assumption that the world comprises of a village of just one hundred people - The result as you can see, is both entertaining and quite illuminating.

These are some stunning statistics, aren't they? To see the rest of his posters go to http://www.toby-ng.com/graphic-design/the-world-of-100
