It saddens me to hear on the news about how poorly some people live in the world.
I decided I would look though and came up with the following.
I added the 2 numbers on the site Fonz posted.
Total = 6,000,000,000
I then looked up the worlds population for today (est.) 6,459,410,538
The 2 figures are close so they must be adding children in the figure.
While I know some children are forced to earn money to help their families, there has to be an awful lot of non-wage-earning babies in the world.
I thought I should look that up too and found that there are some 2.1 billion children in the world and they make up 35% of the worlds population.
Take the number of children out of the figures on the site and the numbers wouldn't look so skewed.
No doubt we have it very good here but places that play with figures get on my nerves.
Just my 2 pennies worth.
