It seems in the U. S. that even people living in poverty have material goods that are not affordable to rest of the world. Americans seem to have lot of stuff. I came across anarticle on MSN Money. It's somewhat amusing that Americans in general may be living paycheck-to-paycheck or incurring credit card debt, but we have all the conveniences.
I compared myself against the stats:
Refrigerator: 99.20%. I got one!
Stove: 98.30%. I got one!
Color TV: 98.20%. I got one!
Auto: 85.70%. I got one!
Microwave: 98.20%. I got one!
VCR: 86.9%. Does a DVD player count?
Washer: 80%. I got one!
Dryer: 77.10%. Mine is a stacking unit with the washer.
Stereo system: 72.55%. Yes, I have a 5.1 system!
Computer: 59.30%. Laptop it is!
