Cool, useful chart below. Global poverty has declined, significantly. To read it, choose a level of annual income on the vertical or y-axis and then use the blue and red lines to find on the horizontal or x-axis the corresponding share of the world population living with less than that income.
If you think the poverty line should be $1,000 per person per year, the 2003 line shows that 48% of the world population was below this poverty line; and ten years later, in 2013, 29% was below this line. A decline of 20 % points in one decade relative to this poverty line.
