Although the proportion of people experiencing chronic hunger is decreasing globally, one in nine individuals still does not get enough to eat. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that 805 million people were living with undernourishment (chronic hunger) in 2012–14, down 209 million since 1990–92 (Figure 1).
Keep in mind that the global population grew by one third during the same time period. About 18.7% of the world lived with chronic hunger in 1991 while 11.2% do so today. Had the percentages stayed the same as in 1991 there would be 1,340,000,000 people in hunger instead of 805,000,000. Things are getting better but we have a long ways to go.
