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

    If the world was village of 100 people, we wouldn't be alive 'cause then there would be 101, 102, and so on. I dont get the title

            I'm most surprised by the water because people make it sound like so many people have dirty water when in reality it not horrible bad.

                Most of us don't understand how fortunate we are and this opens eyes. We should be grateful and overjoyed that we are able to get an education and have support from friends/family/teachers who'll help us to college.

                  I was surprised about the water comparison because I thought that at least a little more had clean water. I was also surprised at the education comparison because I thought that more people went to college.
