The Special Series: Population 7 Billion of National Geographic released a very interesting article about the most typical person in the world.
How it was made?
The composite image was made for National Geographic by the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, China. A collection of photos over the ten-year course of using several national technology research program helped them to create the image of a 28 year-old Han Chinese male.
The most typical profile of the most typical person are :
- 13% Speak Mandarin as their first language.
- 19 % are Chinese
- 33% are Christian
- 40% work in services

Well, here in the Philippines, he really looks familiar in the Streets of Ongpin, Binondo, and around Sta. Cruz, Manila.
Now, I wonder how a typical Filipino looks like? Whose face will represent the 100 Million Filipinos?
