This map shows the territories resized according to the number of nuclear warheads there in 2017.
The total inventory includes warheads in the military stockpile as well as retired, but still intact, warheads in queue for dismantlement.
This map uses data by Federation of American Scientists (last accessed March 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
