Blog 3: Seven-in-ten people globally live on $10 or less per day

  1. This article is about how 7 in 10 people live on $10 or less globally. I chose this tweet because poverty is a global issue and it needs to be acknowledged by the public more.
  2. The data in this tweet came was analyzed by Pew Research Center. It was collected from the World Bank PovcalNet and the Luxembourg Income Study databases. The poor or low income live on $2-$10 daily whereas the high income live on $50 or more daily.
  3. One of the questions I have is why is more than 50% of the global population considered low income and how it this be changed. Another question I have is how would the data be affected if the Caribbean and Central America were included in the study.
