World of 100 Analysis

In this graphic, we are seeing how many people would have good or bad drinking water. What stands out is that in reality only 13 people would have improvised water instead of the 50 or so that myself and the class thought.

This graphic is about how many people would get secondary education. It seems that I did not give enough credit to the general people because my estimates were way off of those of the researchers. The class is seems was also off but not to the extent I was. Despite all the news about uneducated children in other counties The amount of people in the world with education is much larger with those without. In fact it is a kind of comforting notion.

This last graphic is about literacy by gender. In this one again both myself and the class were off in our estimates but the fact is that many people in the world do know how to read and we underestimated them. I think that truly we do not give enough credit to people in other countries, these numbers show that a significant percentage of the world can read.

Overall, between my answers and the correct ones I was not very close with my estimations. The ones I was closet on were religion, gender, and technology.  One catagory that surprised me was that the gender division would be 50/50. I didn't think the world was that even. I think the reason I was so off with my prediction is I don't think I have a complete understanding of the world and I need to understand other countries more. I think I have a very media skewed view, where most of my information comes from how other countries are perceived and not from actual fact.
