If the world were a village of 100 people

Skin Color: 70 non-white; 30 white
Age: 70 adults; 30 children
Electricity: 76 have electricity; 24 haven't

I found this great series of posters by designer Toby Ng. Based on the scenario "if the world were a village of 100 people", this collection of posters illustrates statistics collected from around the world. I love how the information is presented in a simple and straightforward way by using eye-catching vector graphics for each statistic in the scenario. Check out the entire series here.
