This map shows each country proportional to the numbers of Nobel Prizes for Literature won by citizens from there between 1901 and 2018.
This map uses data by The Nobel Institute (last accessed December 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.Download data file
