For strategic purposes, a people group is the largest group through which the gospel can flow without encountering significant barriers of understanding and acceptance. These groups can be as large as several million people, to as few as a hundred. There are currently 11,248 listed people groups, that accounts for almost 7 billion people.
Unreached People group:
An Unreached People Group (UPG) is a people group in which less than 2% of the population are Evangelical Christians. There are currently 6,549 UPG's listed, accounting for almost 4 billion people.
Unreached Unengaged People Group:
A people group is unreached when the number of Evangelical Christians is less than 2% of its population. It is further called unengaged (UUPG) when there is no church planting strategy consistent with Evangelical faith and practice under way. A people group in not engaged when it has been merely adopted, is the object of focused prayer, or is part of an advocacy strategy. This means that unless there is a missionary or church on
the ground among those people with the gospel, they are considered an unengaged group. There are currently 3,056 UUPG's listed, accounting for almost 220 million people.
