This map shows shows the proportion of worldwide human development of the total world population (population multiplied by human development index), found there in 1990.
This map uses data by United Nation Human Development Report (UNHDR) 2016 (last accessed May 2018). 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. Data for this map will soon be available as a download.Download data file
