I have made a world map that shows where the world population of 7.633 billion people is at home. (Never spent as much time on a visualization before.) Just published my new post which introduces it
My cartogram (just updated it) shows where the world population lives. Each square represents half a million people; this year's world population of 7.633 billion people is represented by 15,266 squares. Here is the visualization
If you aren't too familiar with Africa you might find it interesting to study this map showing the population size of each African nation. I certainly learned a bit here. Source:
Our latest post includes the map we need if we want to think about how global living conditions are changing: The cartogram shows where this year's world population of 7.6 billion people lives.
Here's what you get when country size is based on population size
The post about the cartogram that shows where the world population of 2018 is at home – 7.6 billion people – was my most read article this year
World map based on the population size, not on the country size: 13 countries have each more than 100 million people. 36% of the world pop live in #India and #China. They both have a larger population than the entire world population in 1850

This visualization of world population in 2018 is awesome. (via )
Something that's been on my mind all day - Max Rosen's map of the world by population size, via . The limits of narrow nationalism - what the most populated countries (and their leaders) do have an impact on millions.
The cartogram shows you where the in the world we live. One square represents 500,000 people. All 15,266 squares represent the entire world population of 7.633 billion people. There is a lot to discover in it
World map according to population size... Really cool
Some incredibly interesting visuals here , including a #cartogram depicting the number of humans living in countries around the globe and sized in relation to one another. Another graph showing population density by country from 1961-2016

What would the global map look like if size of a country was scaled to population? ⁦
An alternative world-map with the size of countries scaled by their populations.
Population numbers, proportionally captured in a map? This is cat-nip for development geeks! By via Can you name the 13 countries that have >100m people? Answers here.
Also included are separate cartograms for all world regions. The Americas is the world region with the most rapid population growth. A 28-fold increase over the last two centuries – much faster than in Europe (3-fold), Africa (14-fold), or Asia (6-fold).
I’ve redrawn the map of the Americas so that a country's size corresponds to the size of the population. 1 pixel = half a million people [Here is the post with a visualization for the entire world: ]
These biggest 14 countries are home to 62% of the world population. 2 over a billion: China & India 4 over 200 million: USA, Indonesia, Brazil, Pakistan 8 over 100 million: Nigeria, Bangladesh, Russia, Mexico, Japan, Ethiopia, Philippines, & Egypt
With the help of your comments here I updated the population cartogram from last week. Nothing major, but it now includes the Cook Islands, Monaco is correctly spelled, the colors of Finland and Russia are more different to each other, etc. Here it is
The map we need if we want to think about how global living conditions are changing (This surely must be the best map of the 'human' world anyone has ever seen)
That’s amazing Dina! Thanks a lot for sharing! Here is the post if others are interested
Very interesting

I get many emails and questions here about how I did the world population cartogram []. This is my response.
