Territory size shows the proportion of the extra years of life lived by their population through increases in life expectancy between 1950 and 2015.
This map uses data by the United Nations, Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Population Division (2017). World Population Prospects: The 2017 Revision, DVD Edition (last accessed January 2019).
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.
