10 Maps That Prove the World Is Far From Running Out of Space – Huffington Post

People learn things in different ways. Some people have to be told things to comprehend them, while others have to be shown. Nothing can explain things better than a picture. Even children can understand pictures. This blog exposes the truth about a long thought myth of the world’s population-in bright visual colors.

Key Takeaways:

  • It’s no surprise that people are not evenly spread out across the Earth. But seeing the population concentrations mapped out visually can be quite striking.
  • Of the United States’ 3,142 counties, just 144 account for half of the population.
  • Unsurprisingly, the Sahara Desert has one of the lowest population densities on the planet. Nearly half the population of North Africa lives along the banks of the Nile River.

“On a global level, 50% of the world’s population lives in just 1% of its land.”
