The chart below gives information about global population percentages and distribution of wealth by region. Summarize the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant. Write at least 150 words.
The bar graph compares the percentage of the global population versus the wealth distribution by region. Overall, countries with a larger population have a lesser percentage of shares of wealth except for Europeans.
About one-fourth of the population are Chinese but only around 4.5% of the wealth which is similar to countries like Latin America and the Caribbean and some other Asian countries in the Pacific. Indians and Africans have the lowest amount of wealth, accounting for only less than three percent and having a higher population, 15%, and 10% respectively. Although Europe may have a similar percentage of the population to India, Europe holds another third of the world’s wealth.
Around six percent of the world’s population is in North America, yet almost a third of the world’s wealth belongs to this region. A similar pattern to other rich developed countries in the Pacific which holds almost a quarter of the world’s wealth.
