Number of impoverished people in the world

How many impoverished people are there in the world?

More than a billion people live with less than a dollar per day

Believe it or not, statistics show that more than a billion people live with less than a dollar per day.  Needless to say, 2.8 million people, meaning almost half of the global population, live with less than 2 dollars per day.  This is tragic.  Keep in mind that 448 million children in the world are underweight.  Not too many people know that every day, 30,000 children under 5 die from avoidable diseases.  It is interesting to know that 20% of the global population has 90% of the wealth.
