pain %

OK, there's an Oxfam huger banquet that I helped host a while ago. Here's how it went. Based on worldwide statistics, 55% of the attendees, representing the lowest economic levels, receive rice and water. 30% of the participants representing the world's middle class will receive a slightly more balanced meal of beans and rice, and those symbolizing the wealthiest 15% get a typical Western lunch, with sandwiches, fruit, and dessert.

Now I'm trying to adjust this same idea to people who are in no/little pain, pain, & constant pain. What are the persentages that you would estimate based on your experiences of people who have: 1) no/little pain, 2) occasional severe pain, and 3) chronic pain?

ETA: I mean physical pain based on a medical condition
