This paper takes into account the populations and per capita gross domestic product of 145 different economies in order to analyze global inequality and poverty. We find a slight decrease in some indices of global inequality for the calculations of 1950 and those of 2000 but insufficient to be statistically significant; however, with other inequality and poverty measures we see that they increased during these 51 years.
