According to figures released by the U.S. Census Bureau in November, nearly 50 million Americans live in poverty. But what does living in poverty in the United States look like compared to the rest of the world? That’s the subject of today’s quiz with quizmaster Stephan Richter, editor-in-chief of TheGlobalist.com.

Stephan asks: Looking at the fifteen percent of Americans living beneath the poverty line from global perspective, those Americans are still better off than what percentage of the world population?

A.) 22 percent of the world population
B.) 50 percent of the world population
C.) Two-thirds of the world population
D.) 80 percent of the world population
