It's hard to Google infographics
May 27, 2012 9:07 PM   Subscribe

I'm looking for an infographic (?) about how lucky it is to have been born in the developed world. I remember a format similar to "If you are also literate, then you are already in the top x% of the world," with various characteristics substituted in for "literate."

I'm not sure where I saw this; possibly MetaFilter. I'm also not sure if it was actually an infographic or just a series of statistics.

I couldn't find exactly what you described, but visual.ly has a good database of infographics.

Is there a source or citation for these statistics?

Some of the statistics - including the wording - come from this page.
