What a powerful site. The producer of the poster and video reduces world population statistics to data that would reflect 100 people, a much easier number to get our minds around. Find statistics about education, religion, sanitation, nutrition, ethnology, income inequality, and disability. The poster is striking enough, but the short, 3 minute video is even more powerful by putting faces on the statistics. The statistics are current to 2010. Creating an understanding of the conditions of 100 people makes the presentation of worldwide problems so much easier to understand.
