Brookings Institution: Approximately 3 Billion People Live on Less Than $2.50 per Day
"The number of people worldwide living in extreme poverty—defined as living on $1.25 a day or less—was cut in half between 1990 and 2010. Yet more than one billion people still subsist at this level, and about three billion live at under $2.50 a day."
