In all regions except for North America, Western Europe and Japan, less than 2.1% of the population live in households which on US$100-200 purchasing power parity (PPP) a day each. Within North America, Western Europe and Japan 16-19% of the population live on this amount.

In 75 territories less than 1 in 1000 people live on this much, despite using purchasing power parity where a higher value is given to the currency in territories where it is cheaper to live.

As the measure of purchasing power parity takes into account the cost of living in each territory, earning PPP US$150 in Ethiopia means that the same goods and services could be bought as with US$150 in Germany.

"Every man is rich or poor according to the degree in which he can afford to enjoy the necessaries, conveniences, and amusements of human life." Adam Smith, 1776

Territory size shows the proportion of all people living on PPP US$ 100-200 a day worldwide, that live there.
