50% of the global pop. lives on less than $6.85 per person per day


In a blog post from the World Bank, some interesting facts were mentioned about the poverty level and lack of money expected from the global population and how little many people have to live off of. According to the World Bank, six hundred forty-eight million people on the planet - about eight percent of the global population or close to one in twelve people overall - live in extreme poverty. This poverty level is considered to be less than two dollars and fifteen cents a day with that amount measured in United States dollars. Two dollars and fifteen cents a day are considered to be the international poverty line back in twenty twenty-two. That line reflects the median poverty line for the entire planet in terms of average earnings.

Meanwhile, close to forty-seven percent of the global population of the planet lives on less than six dollars and eighty-five cents per day, meaning earning more that day a day to live off of means you earn more than close to half of the entire population of the planet Earth. Six dollars and eighty-five cents per day are considered by the World Bank to be a part of the poverty line for upper-middle-income countries of the globe.

Most of that population can be found in East Asia and parts of the Pacific Ocean like Oceania. On top of that, the second largest region of the planet to live on less than six dollars and eighty-five cents a day is South Asia, followed by people living in Sub-Saharan Africa, then Latin America and the Caribbean.
