The World of 7 billion – Mapping Wealth Distribution

World of 7 Billion. Wealth Distribution MapNational Geographic has just published a swathe of articles and interactive infographics about the world’s population surpassing 7 billion. Amongst these is a striking map of the world combining population density and wealth.

The map overlays one of four different colour filter on each country on top of a global population distribution map to indicate not only where people live but how wealthy, on average they are – in per capita GDP.  Although it doesn’t tell the full story – e.g. the huge income variation within countries – the map powerfully demonstrates the massive disparities in wealth around the globe.
