The territory where the most people live on US$10-20 a day, when measured in purchasing power parity (PPP), is China. In China 26% of the population live on this much - that is 332 million people.

The regions of Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Eastern Asia have the highest percentages of people living on PPP US$10-20 a day. That is 36% in Eastern Europe, and 25% in both the Middle East and Eastern Asia.In both poor and rich regions low percentages of the population live on PPP US$10-20, for opposite reasons. In poor territories the wages needed to achieve this are unaffordable, in rich territories unacceptable.

"If you want to get rid of poverty, we need to empower the poor. Not to treat them like beggars." Hugo Chavez, 2005

Territory size shows the proportion of all people living on PPP US$ 10-20 a day worldwide, that live there.
