MORE THAN HALF THE WORLD LIVES ON LESS THAN $2 A DAY

PRB's 2005 World Population Data Sheet Reveals
Persisting Global Inequalities in Health and Well-Being


As world leaders work to end global poverty, deep inequalities in not only income, but also human and environmental health, continue to plague many countries around the world.

The Population Reference Bureau's 2005 World Population Data Sheet provides new and essential information on just how much separates rich from poor. Despite declines in rates of infant mortality and population growth and increases in girls' education and life expectancy, the breadth and impact of persistent poverty is severe.

Briefing Participants:
Bill Butz, president, Population Reference Bureau
Carl Haub, senior demographer and author of the Data Sheet
Linda Jacobsen, director of domestic programs at PRB
Roger-Mark De Souza, technical director of population, health, and environment at PRB
