The United States (& The World) As A 100 People

| 1 Comment

USA Today has an article today about a book and school curriculum that portrays the United States as one hundred people. I especially like the graphic that accompanies the article that illustrates that concept.

If you’re interested, here’s a similar chart for the entire world.

I’ve posted in the past about the best site for this kind of demonstration. Miniature Earth is a slideshow that uses statistics to reduce the world to 100 inhabitants, and shows how that plays out demographically, who uses what resources, etc. They periodically update the statistics.

  1. 45 Would speak other language. That’s other than English, Spanish, Chinese, Hindi (it said Hindustani in the article) and Arab.

    I would wonder how many would understand English.
