New findings from Gallup’s self-reported income data show that worldwide, one in five residents are living in extreme poverty.

The world’s 22 percent who qualify for what the World Bank defines as extreme poverty — living on $1.25 a day or less — span across 131 countries, and 34 percent, or one in three, live on slightly higher: $2 a day.

Thanks for this story. The maps and groupings are particularly interesting. I will also be praying. We have a friend working as a missionary in Liberia which has a 90% poverty rate according to the article.
