Some food for thought for 2011

Here are some interesting facts and figures for you to mull over.

  • 31% of the world’s population is Christian compared to 21% who are Muslim.
  • 8% of the world’s population speak Hindustani as their first language, the same figure as those who speak English as their first language.
  • 80% of the world’s population are adults, 14% are over 65.
  • 1% of the world’s population own a computer.
  • 25% of the word’s population do not have an adequate food supply and shelter.
  • 17% of the world’s population is undernourished while 15% is overweight.
  • 17% of the world’s population do not have access to clean drinking water.

I read these facts today and I was left wondering what impact they will have on the world in the coming year!
