If a greater percentage of the "rich" people had survived, there could be three possible reasons:

* Some of the crew, in spite of the circumstances, still felt a responsibility to the people who were deemed most important by the steamship company

* Most of the poorer passengers were well below decks (steerage) and had fewer ways to reach safety

* Disruptive infighting would have been more likely among those accustomed to "fighting" for the necessities of life

The largest single discrepancy was by gender, since women and children were given preference in the lifeboats. The biggest difficulty to survival was the frigid water (0° C), immersion causing death within minutes. Even some who made it to the lifeboats eventually succumbed.

On the Titanic why the rich people got off of the ship first and the poopr people were forced to get off last?

Because the wealthiest people were to be the best treated, when they bought tickets to board the boat, the rich people bought tickets signing that they would have the best treatment on the boat, that is why most of the poor people died but not the rich, like in the movie Titanic.
