Nearly 50% of people in the world can’t swim

Nearly 50% of people in the world can't swim I was really surprised to discover that half of the planet’s population can not swim.

I looked at a Facebook question posted on my friend’s wall asking people if they could swim. Out of 14,000 respondents worldwide, nearly half answered ‘No’. This implies that only 50% of people in the world can swim!

I verified the findings with Google which confirmed that 30-50% people can’t swim according to different sources.

Can you swim?

How exactly do people responding to a question on Facebook correlate to the general population of Earth?
