Fact of the Day

India's average income was more than $1,400 a year, enough to qualify as middle-income. 

But in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, home to 200 million people, the average was less than a third of that-only $436 a year. 

In the neighbouring state of Bihar, with another 100 million people, it was just $249 a year. That's about 68 cents a day.
