National Geographic went and collected statistics on the worlds 7-billion strong population. What they found was the most frequent person on Earth is male, 28-years old and is Han Chinese in ethnicity. There are 9-million of them alive.

They didn’t stop there. They took photos of 190,000 fitting the criteria above and create a digital composition of the world’s most typical person. There’s a very strong chance you’ve seen someone in Winnipeg, or in a movie, or on a poster, looking just like the photo.

Studies also show that in 20-years, that photo will change and the most typical person will be of Indian decent.

Hit the jump for the video…
