Territory size shows the proportion of all people living in urban areas, that live in that territory in 2014. The colour overlay shows the people living in urban areas as a per cent share of the total population.
This map uses data by United Nations, Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Population Division published in the World Urbanization Prospects: The 2014 Revision (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.
