Great job, but does this graph take into account the inflation over the period? $1.25 in 1981 would have the same purchasing power as more than $2.50 in 2008. If this inflation has not been accounted for then 3 billion people are living in the same poverty now that 2 billion people were living in back in 1981. The population of the World was about 4.5 billion in 1981 compared to 7 billion now, so it would appear that there has been little or no improvement over 30 years with more than 40-45% living in absolute poverty
