Territory size is proportionate to the number of cattle there in 2016.
This map uses data by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) (last accessed March 2018). (last accessed March 2018). The data on livestock numbers are intended to cover all domestic animals irrespective of their age and the place or purpose of their breeding. Estimates have been made for non-reporting countries as well as for countries reporting incomplete data.
We aim to map as complete data as possible and therefore estimate data for missing values. In some cases, missing data for very small territories is not used in the cartogram and that area is therefore omitted in the map.
Further notes on the data, as well as all modifications to the original data source are noted in our data sheets.Download data file
