World Bank: 883 Million People Living On Less Than $1.25 A Day In 2015

December 22, 2011 1:57 pm

We had spotted multiple poverty statistics before. We spotted this today:

“WorldBank – The number of people living on less than $1.25 (PPP 2005) a day is projected to be 883 million in 2015, compared with 1.4 billion in 2005 and 1.8 billion in 1990. Much of this progress reflects rapid growth in China and India, while many African countries are lagging behind: 17 countries are far from halving extreme poverty, even as the aggregate goals will be reached.”
