So would the countries look if their sizes corresponded to the number of inhabitants

Even from school, we are all familiar with the standard map of the world. Did you imagine her in a different way? If not, then Max Roser from Our World in Data online has already done this for you. He formed it based not on the size of the area of ​​each country, but based on population density. As a result, he had a rather curious demographic cartogram.

Revision AdMe.ru carefully read the work of an economist and media critic. And I decided to compare some countries from the map of Max Roser and from a regular physical map.

What is a demographic cartogram?

A cartogram is a method of cartographic representation of statistical data (in this case, data on the Earth’s population for 2018). Each square on the Max Roser map is 500 thousand people in the country. Well, only 15 266 squares were placed on his cartogram – this is all 7.633 billion people in the world. So, for example, Russia and Canada, which are huge in size, and which have not a very large number of people, look much smaller on Roser’s schemes.

Below are maps showing 24 countries. The upper ones show the real sizes of the countries, and the lower ones show what the outlines of the states would look like if we take the population density as a basis.
