    Default One in 122 is someone who has been forced to flee their home. The mind boggles.

    The UN says the number of forcibly displaced people worldwide will "far surpass" a record 60 million this year,
    Put another way, one in every 122 humans is someone who has been forced to flee their home.
    One in 122. Hard to comprehend. 0.82% (almost one percent) of the world’s population.

    1 in 122 ......................worldwide.

    In IRELAND the number who emigrated over the last 5 years was over 200,000 or put another way 1 in 40 ( forced economically to flee).
    This figure is just a CSO official figure to try to make the government look good...................the actual numbers may be quite a lot higher.
