A picture of global household wealth in five charts - Quartz

◆ Graph of global financial assets (cash, shares, other financial products) and nonfinancial assets (mainly real estate · debt) from 2005 to 2016
The global financial crisis that took place between 2007 and 2008 has a big influence on households and you can see that worldwide household property is drastically decreasing.

◆ Percentage of poor people by region in 2016 (50% extracted from those with less property in the world)
In India and Africa, about 80% of the adult population is the poor to the middle class, indicating that the disparity in wealth is intense. North America and Europe have the fewest wealth inequalities, but Europe is not homogeneous as it actually is in North America, but in North America there are many wealthy northern Europe, poverty in eastern and southern Europe There are regional disparities that there are many countries. In North America, which has the smallest disparity, there are people who fall under the poor worldwide, but these indicate the existence of "low-income people in high-income domestic" where the debt exceeds the assets. Liabilities include credit lines of credit and student loans.

In addition, it is known that fluctuations in wealth are greatly affected by age, education, and marital status, and it seems that young insecure single mothers are most likely to turn to the bottom.

◆ Percentage of wealthy people by region in 2016 (10% extracted from many people all over the world)
By distributing 10% of the world's wealthy people by region, you can see the current situation of the gap between rich and poor occurring all over the world. In Europe and North America where the ratio of wealthy people is large, it is known that people with assets of more than $ 100,000 (approximately 11 million yen) exist at rates of 25% and 38%, respectively.

◆ Percentage of adults with regional assets of less than 10,000 dollars (about 1 million yen) in 2016
The developing countries, such as India and Africa, have few wealthy people, indicating that the majority of the population are poor people who can not earn their livelihood.

◆ A graph showing the minimum asset value of the top 1% of the world's wealthy people by region
Among the wealthiest people in the world, ranked among the top 1% of the top-ranked HNWIs, listing the people with the least assets by region, the lowest amount in North America is $ 4,470,000 (about 500 million yen) There is a big difference in the second place in Europe of $ 1.41 million (about 160 million yen). As a ratio, the disparity of the wealth of the top 10% to the top 1% in North America is a level that surpasses the disparity of the wealth of India and Africa as a whole, and seems to have created a large wealth bias among the wealthy people in developed countries.
